Client: Grace Souky

 

Project Detail: 

Grace is a long standing client of ours. We also met Grace on her stand at Milan Design Week, where we discussed several briefs from her very timeless and modern range of furniture and homeware objects.

The range is centred around a brass plated metal cake stand, and an accompanying serving knife. Here we used a European-based metalworker for the laser cutting and welding of this very intricate shape and the brass plating was outsourced. The cake stands are completed with a choice of two tops made from very different materials. Option one is a shadowy black walnut made at a factory based in Northern Europe who commonly produce wooden chopping boards and serving boards. The second option is impenetrable Carrara marble; rare in its availability and production, made by a small family run workshop based in the heart of Central Europe

Additional products developed for Grace’s homeware range, were the black walnut and maple salad utensils, made using a trusted source of ours in the Far East, and coloured borosilicate glass vases that are still at the sampling and prototyping stage with one of a handful of our superior glass manufacturers throughout Central Europe.
