Post-Luxurian Artifacts by Emilie F. Grenier

An object of opulence and luxury is often defined by what is rare and precious; however, what if that same object were made of Earth’s most abundant resources? England-based designer Emilie F. Grenier creates unique, minimalist items forged from crystalline minerals and industrially extruded brass.

 

Having recently graduated from MA Textile Futures at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, Grenier’s work explores alternative solutions to the production and consumption of luxury products. Rooted in sustainable design, her beautiful and simple objects derived primarily from feldspar gemstones, introduces a new luxury of ethical and elegant standards.       For more information, visit http://commedesmachines.com Photography by Tristan Thomson
