6D Atelier is an Italian duo based in London founded by Mauro Fragiotta and Francesca Adami. Born and trained in Italy they both gained experiences in high-end interior projects collaborating with architecture and collectible design practices in Italy and UK before starting their partnership in late 2017. The different training of the two allows the practice to operate in a wide range of projects, bringing together different influences to create revolutionary projects interweaving design with art.
"We design and self-produce exclusive limited editions and bespoke items, furniture and lighting projects. Our design is not only a combination of technical and aesthetic characteristics but also the result of experiences, research and our cultural heritage. Each project is a unique process that leads to a radically new result."
The duo's practice started with self-produced furniture pieces with a very distinctive geometrical and minimalistic shapes, continuing with an investigation into influence of mathematics in nature's aesthetics and the phenomenology of perception.
Comets and meteors have always fascinated the human race since they were first spotted in night skies and ancient cultures often depicted them into myths and legends to explain them. Meteorite is a mirroring wall artwork inspired by these powerful interplanetary objects which become meteors when they enter our atmosphere leaving a bright trail in the sky.
The cosmos and its secrets are recurrent sources of inspiration of 06D Atelier's objects, Meteorite is a strongly representative piece of their work but also a result of researches to create new optical effects using glass mirrors.
