Grande by Aurelie Mathieu & Charlotte Sunnen Service: Product Design, Art Direction Year: 2013
6×6 part 1 is the first piece made by Grande. This archetypal form of a hanging rail stages laminated stone into a new functional aesthetic. Grande’s purpose is to reinvent technical principles of assembly and execution in unexpected ways. 6x6 part 1 set the pace for Grande to balance tradition with decontextualized rules of production. This inaugural piece inspired by laminated wood has a bold aesthetic that joins traditional materials with innovative techniques. It was shown in Milan in 2014 during the Salone Satellite.
