GRILLAGE

Grillage
The principle for creating the basic shape of Grillage is very simple: a sheet of metal with staggered grooves is folded, origami-style, and then drawn to create a mesh. Grillage tells the story of its manufacturing process...drawing, folding, creasing. It reveals everything about itself, from how it was designed to how it was produced. Grillage – wire mesh - it's the way to achieve both comfort and ergonomics with an all-metal piece of furniture. It may be covered with a special quilted material for added comfort and a warmer appearance. An outdoor version is available in light blue. To manufacture Grillage, a sheet of metal, which is grooved in staggered rows, is stretched. Metal wire is then soldered to the exterior, piece by piece. The sheet thus obtained is folded at various points to create the seat: this is a manual operation which renders each armchair 'unique'. The shape of the armchair will evolve over time.

DESIGNER

2011
François Azambourg has won much recognition over the years: lauréat de la villa Médicis hors les murs (2003), Grand Prix du Design de Paris (2004), lauréat du concours Top Plastique (3 times), and lauréat du concours du musée des arts décoratifs. His work links both the techniques and the art within the applied arts. In 1994, having been awarded the lauréat du concours du CTBA, he began to create new materials for Hermès. His work was shown at the VIA between 1999 and 2003: a fireside chair in wood and foam, the ‘Pack’ chair, a lamp in woven optical fibres, a light in double-layer textile, and the ‘very nice’ chair, which was inspired by the little balsa-wood chairs of his childhood. In 2002, Designers’ Days enabled him to continue exploring the theme of fibre-optic lights; and he designed a ‘micro-restaurant’ for Lille 2004. Such projects lie at the very heart of his philosophy that a designer should be able to contradict himself, and not be held to his originally-chosen course. Whereas some may place a great deal of importance in theory, he holds the object in a much higher regard. This philosophy is the basis for his creations for the Carte Blanche for VIA, and his works for Cappellini, Domeau & Peres and Ligne Roset.
