An annual event during which the British institution associates brands/designers and know-how around exceptional pieces made especially for the occasion. Each pair of designers is keen to go beyond their usual comfort zone to offer creations that meet the ever-growing expectations of design week regulars.
The "Wellness+Wonder*" theme is le grammethe focus of the 2018 season. True to his passion for the material and his sense of ritual, he le grammehas designed a unique piece in line with this "Wellness+Wonder" theme: a healing set called "Discover the Joy of Discipline".
Although the brand has mastered its know-how when it comes to precious metals, it had set itself the challenge of imagining a functional object in the most fragile material there is: crystal. Often dedicated to the consumption of spirits, crystal makes it possible here to sacralise something equally precious: the attention one pays to oneself.
- A vitamin. The 35g.
- A dried fruit ramekin. The 41g.
- A water glass. The 99g. Engraved with the mantra " Discover the Joy of Discipline ".
- One juice tumbler. The 161g.
- A water pitcher. The 209g.
Each piece is characterized by its pyramid guilloché base line. Unified on the height of the vitaminizer, the pyramid guilloché draws a common horizon for the five objects. First imprint explored byle gramme, the pyramid guilloché had also been worked by Lobmeyr for the edition of a set with A.Loos.
Echoing his bracelets, rings and keyring, a silver cover (99g) made in the French workshops of le gramme, punctuates the variation of cylinders.
le gramme proposes here a morning ritual, so everyone will define the order, the ingredients and the context by placing the set in front of a photograph, a landscape, a window. Like every worn or functional le grammeobject, this new creation can be personalised with a sentence or a mantra.
Each element of the set is the result of a challenge pushing the limits of demanding and fragile materials and the uncompromising aesthetic demand of le gramme & LOBMEYR.
Happiness and minimal rendering seem here to have the same origin: discipline.
