The Justus Lipsius Building. The Lithuanian Garden in Brussels | author: eu2013.lt

Today the “garden” is the main visual element of the Lithuanian Presidency of the Council of the EU – its elements can be found in the Justus Lipsius building as well as the National Gallery of Art in Vilnius.

 

The period of the Lithuanian Presidency of the Council of the EU in the second half of 2013 is distinguished by an intensive agenda. Hence it is a rare occasion that meeting rooms at the Justus Lipsius European Union Council headquarters are empty – every week dozens of delegates from all EU Member States pay a visit. We are happy to have been able to design comfortable and aesthetic spaces for the delegates’ rest which we believe will inspire them for the important jobs and necessary decisions ahead.

The accents of Lithuanian design are noticeable immediately upon entering the atrium with The Gardens of Europe installation, which is a good example of how elements of Lithuanian folk art can still be successfully used. A traditional figure of Lithuanian folk art – the “garden” – is made from straws bound together and hung above tables during feasts. The figure made from geometric elements is foremost a symbol of harmony and order.

Today the “garden” is the main visual element of the Lithuanian Presidency of the Council of the EU – its elements can be found in the Justus Lipsius building as well as the National Gallery of Art in Vilnius.
