Once it was prophesied the great glory for Kaunas and Laisvės alėja (Liberty Boulevard) was compared to Hollywood. There are lots of stories but the truth is, that Kaunas today can be proud of its unique identity – modern architecture of the interwar. It is a sign, that Europe starts in Kaunas…
The collection is devoted to Kaunas city interwar modernist architecture. Seven of the most prominent structures of modernism architecture were selected and seven different jewelry concrete details were created, reflecting the main accents of these objects. We created handmade silver construction, the bottom part of which can be changed and details can be changed, to create a unique city in us and to understand the main human experiences in the city. This collection is a synthesis of different visual artistic directions, encouraging to look at history again, to think about what is modernism now and then. By the way, desired to focus on consumerism. Encourage people to love what has been seen by bringing new accents and promoting love for the city.
