The ARAM collection by GANDIABLASCO came about from its innate curiosity about the everyday. Work of Japanese designer Oki Sato, for Nendo Studio, the ARAM collection consists of elegant and delicate stools and auxiliary tables, created using the Indian craft technique of weaving wires around a metal frame.
“My inspiration comes from daily life: the day to day can be so rewarding if one pays the attention it deserves,” affirms Oki Sato. Made by hand using powder-coated stainless steel wire, each piece within the collection is unique. “The open gaps between the wires gradually increase creating a sensation of gradation. A design created thanks to a small change applied to an existing technique,” explains Oki Sato.
In both versions of its stools and side tables for indoors and outdoors ARAM is available in white, taupe, sand, bronze, green, yellow and anthracite tones. Their elemental and practical design make them the perfect com- plementary accessories for both contract and residential projects.
ARAM is a soulful collection that combines tradition, craft and contemporary design in a natural and unforced manner.
