Hermès ‘petit h’ is a creative laboratory entrusting artists, designers, and craftsmen, to create objects with precious materials salvaged from the Hermès production. The objects should be functional but unconventional and poetic, and of course faithful to the standards of Hermès.
Every year, it’s a surprise. In 2011, it is hidden under a Hermès scarf that we chose to present these objects to store owners. Upon a magical blow by the observer, the product was revealed.
SIGMASIX is a Geneva - based experimental studio combining a large spectrum of practices with a focus on lighting design, scenography, museography and installations. Each project is seen as a new take on existing technologies, interactive strategies, and a new opportunity to merge techniques and art to offer unique and exceptional experiences.
As a practice Sigmasix is in a constant search for magic and poetry obtained by allowing alien technologies cohabit together. The studio’s ambition is to repurpose technologies to spaces and objects. It does so with an extraordinary capacity in integrating technicalities to the point of dilution where perception breaks down to the core of the concept.
Initiated in 2004 by Swiss artists Eric Morzier and Florian Pittet, SIGMASIX works both on art and research projects as much as commercial and consulting ones. Today, the studio has a small team of four people and works with a vast network of freelancers and interns to make sure all project and ideas are aligned with each and every client’s needs.
