Vilnius Book Fair
Exposition for the best Lithuanian books of the year. Two nominations - best books and most beautiful books of the year are elected every year at Vilnius book fair. Exposition goal - to design an exposition that can be used for several times and no one has to look after it during the book fair.

This table can be used for several times. Pure shaped exposition tables create the impression of lightness, are elegant and can be easily used in any kind of space. And still look good.
Size of the table can vary depending on the needed size of the exposition. If you use 1 table out of 3, exposition will look like s japanese fan. Use 2 of 3 - butterfly, if you use hole 3 - you’ll get a perfect white circle that levitates on thin wooden legs.
Three tables dance. Every third step they come together and put one feet to the centre.
To protect all the beautiful books from getting lost, we gently attach white elastic thread. Like mittens, attached to each other.
For ones who would like more interactive exposition. Like foosball or any other arcade games machine. Just for the books.
What if there would be somebody to work at the exposition? And would like to do it in a different way, like a performance? People - volumes, like cork objects. Volumes ar moving like glowing leaping ocean.
To feel the scale and proportion. And to watch the performance from above.
Or we all could just gather around one big table and calmly flip through the books. If we are careful, even maybe to eat a sandwich.
Large scale six angled table that still does not overwhelm any space. Inviting everyone to come and sit next to it.
