Cramer + Mitterrand Geneva
On the occasion of RePacked a special team was selected to design and handcraft all of the 19 pieces exhibited. This project was imagined with the idea of re-interpretation, re-use of studio projects.
The Centerpieces for instance are created by stacking wooden crates and showcases, the most precious and vulnerable items being safely packed in the core of the stack. The idea is that the piece will reveal itself like a matroeska.
The Crate Cabinets was a project launched in 2003-2004, in which packing material was given a new meaning. The Crate being the packaging and the Cabinet at the same time.
For this special edition more delicate and precious materials are used, like plexiglass, making it the ultimate showcase
