Bart Van houcke of Studio Achoo designed a collection of outdoor furniture for IDDO Furniture: LEAF.

"Inspired by the perfection of nature forms, commonality and distinctiveness of the Sun and the Moon, harmony, and change – it is a merger and a play of two countries, two cultures.

Objects complement each other and create different compositions in different combinations. They fulfill both small balcony furnishing and space of home terraces."

Heren Loebas developed a collection of Lithuanian souvenirs for From.It: WOOLF.

"We designed the iron wolf as a modern approach to the mythical figure. By combining it with the rough edges of the brutalist Ninth Fortress Memorial and the geometric shapes of modernist architecture, it harmoniously fuses Vilnius and Kaunas."
