GRAND-APX is designed to be full of juxtaposing elements, a truly thought provoking frame. GRAND-APX is an oversized character frame, which is a design pillar in DITA’s DNA. A frame that was inspired by the opposing thoughts of gentle yet strong, rigid yet soft and excessive yet paired with a minimalistic design. Bold hardware and fasteners decorate the frame to exemplify strength while sculpted multi piece hinges showcase the opposing gentle side of design. Horizontal wire core can be seen beneath the surface from the top and bottom highlighting the rigidity that is covered by a softness. The three piece hinge with enamel inlay, is excessive while remaining minimal at first glance. GRAND-APX was designed with intentional details creating the effect of a powerful presence that truly stands alone.
