"Roommates" by Barbora Žilinskaite is a collection of personified furniture pieces designed to intrigue human emotions and change the way how we perceive everyday objects around us.

Together with the industrialisation of production, the standardisation of design began, provoking a similarity of the produced goods, inert or shorter-term consumption, and monotony of everyday experience. Although industrial and technological achievements are encouraging, the emotional connection between an object and a person gradually disappeared, objects became more often replaced with new ones.

The aim of project "Roommates" is to question whether it is necessary to give emotional value to objects and how could it change the daily human routine or consumption habits. All pieces are made out of a mixture of wood dust, pigment, and wood glue, a material Žilinskaite chose for its ability to be both brightly dyed and hand-sculpted into organic forms.
