Ainė’s Bunikytė says: “Ridge roof is the result of three year research based on function paradoxes within design objects and designed spaces. It’s a paradox that the table and the chairs would be almost functional if they weren’t unreachable”.

A roof also becomes para-functional since it gains a new function – it becomes a floor” comment the Lithuanian designer.
