Adding a touch of fantasy to the real world, Lithuanian furniture brand Egli Design has created artistic storage units that seem to come straight out of some mystical land. Egli is founded by Eglė Mie (Mieliauskienė), Lithuanian artist with a very distinctive style, who creates out-of-the-world furniture that is wondrous and practical at the same time.
She beautifully handcrafts her fantasy world in form for sculptural cabinets and bars to add unearthly aesthetics to any contemporary home. Each furniture unit has its own personality that would reflect in either modern or traditional surrounding.
The team of designers at Egli Design knows how to express style and mystery through every detail and hidden symbols – that’s why they are more than a furniture manufacturer. In 2016, the limited-edition furniture collection was showcased at a number of international exhibitions: Maison-Objet (Paris and Singapore), Salone del Mobile-Milan, Carrusel del Louvre, Paris.
