GIRIA in Lithuanian means an old-growth forest that has attained great age without significant disturbance. The project is aimed to pass the sensation of the forest through material, to bring the nature to one’s home.
Tree bark and leaves - a byproduct of the tree cutting industry- are transformed into sustainable design objects with a unique appearance and a scent of a tree. No two items in GIRIA are the same: each is made by hand from the bark dust of different kinds of trees (Oak, Pine, Ash and tree leaves) that gives a unique texture, varying in colour and roughness of a surface.
