'Pack, Sweet Pack'

The BOX stool was born from the transfer of cardboard folding techniques adapted to aluminium sheets. With its handle on the top, it refers to makeshift seats and can be stored in the same way as a cardboard box.

After the success of their first two collections HERITAGE IN PROGRESS and NEW RICH, Big-game is back with a new experiment: PACK, SWEET PACK.

For this new collection, the three designers confront the worlds of home and industrial packaging. By doing so, they intend to take advantage of the formal and constructive qualities of packaging to create home items.

Though packaging is both disposable and ephemeral, it is linked with various types of use. Cardboard boxes, for instance, are often used as makeshift seats or as floor protections. PACK, SWEET PACK was born from the reinterpretation of this provisional aesthetic.

By borrowing shapes and materials from that field, the members of Big-game show their fascination for the unpretentious beauty of packaging goods.
