The Plié collection is a result of a nearly two-year process of technological experiment with wood and the art of tailoring. The technique that was developed by Plié by Atelier workshop leader Gergely Kiss-Gál, compounds the act of creating furniture with simplicity, adding the uniqueness of tailor-made design.
The soul of the project is a laminated panel type that was worked out in several experiments of connecting different material types in layers to create a flexible but stable structure. This blank canvas can hold any fashion. The vision was to mix the artisanship of tailoring with manufacturing furniture.
Plié by Atelier is an experimental workshop that was established in 2012 by studio atelierarchitects and its two founders, Gergely Kiss-Gál and Zsuzsanna Kiss-Gál, who are both young professional Hungarian architects. The attitude and the drive of designer and maker Gergely Kiss-Gál is behind the philosophy of the newly founded workshop: his unique and innovative vision motivates him to experiment and to find new technologies or even to creatively integrate other profession’s technologies in furniture design or in architecture.
Plié by Atelier is now an existing space, with walls, floor and ceiling, where a special plant is set up with customized tools and unique shapes and models that enable the proper technological background to manufacture the brand new Plié collection.
