PERSONAL SCALE

Contemporary Design Exhibition

17.06.2021 – 23.07.2021

Zieta Studio’s selected objects: PLOPP in sapphire-emerald finish, Chippensteel 0.5 raw and TAFLA O were part of the exhibition “Personal Scale”, at the Vartai Gallery in Vilnius. 

 

 

The show explored the concept of sustainability from the author’s personal design perspective. Industry is enshrining certain trends. They are becoming a matter of course and can hinder an objective and individual view of sustainability issues. Both recycled and natural material can work in one context and contradict itself in another. The author’s design provides an opportunity to know and understand things better, by delving into production processes and seeing oneself in the reflections of material culture.

The practices that have been presented at the exhibition function as reflections of specific or barely perceptible problems, indirect references that question various sustainability solutions and hopefully encouraging the emergence of an individual critical position. Conceptuality, which is the intellectual component of the value of an object, makes an object long-lasting and self-valuable, and therefore more sustainable.

In the exhibition, the scale of the problem field is reduced from the industrial to the personal level, from speaking globally to an individual message. A wide range of design perspectives and practices reveal the opportunity to discuss sustainability from a variety of angles, to distance oneself from any objective truths or rules. And it doesn’t matter at all whether the object is handmade or industrially produced, newly made or recycled, natural or synthetic, unique or cleverly mass-produced. Sustainability lies not only in the material or production process, but also in the personal relationship with the object.
