The Sheet models by GIGI Studios LAB have been developed using just four welding points that bring sturdiness and strength to the structure. The hinges used are Monoblock, which make the assembly much more practical. The end tips are made in milled acetate, to guarantee comfort without giving up any lightness.

GIGI Studios LAB

The new Sheet stainless steel models form part of the GIGI Studios LAB collection, which is inspired by technology and fashion. The subtlety of the designs and their extreme lightness define this collection that is characterised by the use of ultra-light materials such as beta-titanium and high-density acetate. An exact implementation that combines traditional techniques with cutting edge technology to reach the most refined aesthetics.
