Guaxs Brought Incredible Glass Work To Maison et Objet 2019Saturday 26 January 2019
Guaxs Brought Incredible Glass Work To Maison et Objet 2019 ⇒ GUAXS is a family-based German company that focuses on creating high-quality interior design objects and lighting. The inspiration for their work is derived from the intense engagement with different cultures and the tracing of their shared characteristics from ancient to modern times. In conformity with this operating principle, GUAXS aims for the maintenance of incredible craftsmanship and its local tradition. At Maison et Objet 2019, the brand premiered their newest products. Today, CovetED brings you a closer look at the amazing pieces. Enjoy!
All of these aspects are implemented into contemporary design. At GUAXS, designers and craftsmen produce valuable objects that are created to last. Hence they only use sustainable materials such as glass, metal, wood and natural stone, which all have a long-established craft tradition. According to their previous designs, each GUAXS object is produced in exclusive family-owned handicraft factories. There, it receives the unique style GUAXS objects are famous for.
The design of their products is based on a philosophy that both intuitively and consciously leaves its mark on the experience of form. Cultural inspiration, the preservation of manual skills and the effort to create objects that have an organic effect are closely interwoven during this process. The search for a new shape is a process that requires further explanation. The origin of a new form is situated somewhere between a pool of forms inspired by nature or culture, the process of experience and a spontaneous idea. Starting from this spiritual moment, the evolution of form continues all the way through the visual dimension of draft to the physical experience of the hands while moulding the model form.
GUAXS glass is processed in small, exclusive factories which are specialised in producing small editions for international artists and designers. The craftsmen usually work as a team. In order to be successful, the teams need a high degree of skill and experience, but also coordination and physical strength.
