Last summer, we had the chance to take part in the Hors Pistes residency in Nuuk, Greenland. During one month, together with 6 other designers and an editorial team, we discovered the traditional Inuit crafts and collaborated with local artisans.
Inspired by the maritime world, we developped two projects around ropes. The first one, in collaboration with Qalut Vònin's team, is a duet of steel structures covered with nets. Playing with colors, weights and knots, the pieces mix various classic furniture typologies. The second project is a range of two serving trays experimenting with classic Greenlandic kayak making techniques such as wood bending and knot-making.
