Designed by Avi Fedida, Grit is a series of furniture made mainly from sandpaper. Looking at this project we learn to look at all materials from a new perspective. The inspiration for Grit came from the love of working with different materials and developing unique characters of their own with the effect of time and wear. "Designing my furniture, I chose sand paper as the main component through intervening in the process of attrition, where the sand paper practically becomes a kind of canvas," says Fedida.
This project introduces innovation in terms of materials and techniques that create texture by grinding a rich variety of wood on the paper. The sand paper is Integrated within white oak constructions, which is built in fine craft carpentry and remains as exposed as possible. The collection includes, lamps, tables consoles and shelves.
