What inspires Grain's aesthetic? Chelsea: “I think my personal aesthetic is informed by my family history plus a good dash of order. I'm drawn to over-the-top textures and methodical details, but also have a need to create some sort of organized structure in order to be able to deal with it all. Woman vs. nature I guess. We talk a lot about technology and the handmade. As much as we are drawn to craft and the romantic ideals of being makers, we try not to be too nostalgic. We're excited by the efficiency that current technologies can provide. Our Bound and Stitch mirrors are a good example of this. We cut all the parts mechanically (waterjet, CNC, laser) and then patiently wrap them together by hand while catching up on Netflix."
