While working on this project, I followed Zero Waste philosophy and sought to shed light on an increasingly prevalent problem of environmental pollution, as well as to reduce its impact through the processes and alternative products I create.
I had tested a number of natural materials as well as their mixtures before I came up with the most suitable solution - biodegradable algae-based material. All my experiments also figure as an inseparable part of the final solution.

My passion is to create unexpected and original objects and I love to express my thoughts through product design. I’m creating innovative solutions for the furniture and everyday life objects.
At this moment, I'm most interested in a new biodegradable materials development, experiments with natural resins and local organic waste ingredients. I can contribute to the reduction of global pollution problems while creating alternative products and adapting them to the market.
I received a Product Design bachelor degree at Vilnius Academy of Arts this year.
Currently I'm studying at Vilnius Academy of Arts for a Master degree of Product Design.
