Having a cup of tea on Vilnius old town while promising a romantic adventure? With Ridge Roof furniture, Ainė Bunikytė created a charming design set that sits on the pitched roofs of Uzupis unconventional art district.
A table and a couple of chairs are safely held to the city pitched roofs and rise higher over the picturesque skyline suggesting a new conception of public space.
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.
