6x6 part 2 is the second project by Grande Studio made of recycled scraps from the marble industry.
Grande was founded in 2013 by Charlotte Sunnen and Aurelie Mathieu based on the idea of creating projects mixing geometrical elements, technical challenges, noble materials and craftmanship technique.
Originating from a partnership with the marble mason’s workshop “Gros-Derudet” based in Lyon, 6x6 is a project optimising physical properties of stone to push the limits of traditional constraints. Inspired by wooden laminated panels, this material is designed as a sandwich of stone glued together later cut into 6 cm by 6 cm battens.This method significantly increases the rigidity of the stone by creating a new raw material. It then becomes possible to produce pieces of a much greater range while using the leftovers from this industry. This approach allows to implement a system which creates furniture and large structures preserving the thin stone range.
Composed of 3 pieces, a coffee table, a console and a lamp, 6x6 part 2 has been designed as statement pieces integrated into consumers daily life.
