From the designer
The inspiration for the “Grit” furniture series came from the love to materials that constantly develop a unique character of their own with the effect of time and wear.
Designing my furnitures, I decided to use sand paper as the main component through intervening in the process of attrition, where the sand paper practically becomes a kind of canvas.
The project introduces innovation in terms of materials and techniques that create texture by grinding a rich variety of wood on the paper.
The sand paper is integrated within white oak constructions, which is built in fine craft carpentry and remained as exposed as possible.
