DIX au carré

D for Design, I for Innovation, and X for the meeting of these two lines of thought. The combination of these forces enables DIX au carré to square the power of their products.

DIX au carré

DIX au carré was born from the meeting of two creators, bringing together artistic and technical talent. Performance plus experience creates the added value of our products. We are able to take charge of any or every step in the process of developing your project. Thanks to our intimate knowledge of materials, and of the shaping and assembly processes, we can offer support service to every designer who wishes to create products that combine form and function beautifully.

 

Beyond the DIX au carré team, we offer a unique design location for the entertainment industry. At one address, we provide a design meeting space and complete modelling, fabrication, prototype development, assembly and finishing services, as well as an area dedicated to performance testing.

About us

DIX au carré offers a 2,300-square-foot playground to its designers and partners.
Ideas are sketched and perfected in the mezzanine area overlooking the workshop. From notepad to the computer screen, elaborated concepts are printed on fabrication plans or directly in 3D, right before your eyes.
We are able to work metals, woods and plastics with the upmost precision and finish. If these options do not fit your needs, we can laminate a custom solution for you. CNC machining, laser cutting, quick prototyping and autoclave, DIX au carré has no limits when it comes to giving form to your ideas.
Modular and mobile work areas optimize project assembly. The assembly line is designed specifically for each project and can be entirely relocated for large-scale projects.
A third of the workshop is dedicated to performance testing. This area is equipped with a hooking grid, a photography studio and a projection space. It is the meeting point for artists and designers, for art and science.
