The Amplitudes platters have been initiated after the meeting of Virgile Pilon, guitar maker in the Basque country.
By deconstructing the codes of the music instrument, we attribute another use to the materials mastered by the craftsman.
Two twin wooden planks side by side,
Four stress points rigorously arranged.
A simple connexion piece brings the membrane in tension, until its movement freeze.
Wood has a direction, strenght and flexibility, and reacts to the efforts that are asked for him.
Matter is challenged, bended and tuned, to contain and receive.

Amplitude is part of the Ondulation collection, by Editions du coté
