In creating HistoryCube, our aim was to create a true art and history object. We wanted to create a unique piece of art, bringing together 14 fragments of authentic historical objects, selected, cut out and enclosed in a block of resin, constituting in itself a small personal museum to be collected or simply to be admired, exhibited or carried. From a dinosaur egg to Zinedine Zidane's jersey, from Marie-Antoinette's dress to a piece of the Concorde's wing, each HistoryCube contains little pieces of great history.
HistoryCube goes back in time to unearth and safeguard unique artifacts for future generations. At a time when our screens have taken over our lives, and goods are intentionally manufactured not to last, this project goes against the grain of the mutable and the ephemeral. Our small personal museum, made of natural, low-tech materials, is designed to stand the test of time. The artifacts—or rather, artifact fragments—it integrates are cast in resin, an extremely durable material and are intended to be kept forever, passed from generation to generation.
Our first series of HistoryCubes is numbered and strictly limited to 5,000 editions. Not a one more than that will come out of our workshops. All of our cubes are carefully packaged in a case containing a stone display base and a 230-page booklet, in both French and English, with the story of each cube. Finally, HistoryCube is entirely – and proudly – made in France.
