The Niessing Cube, the new jewel of the German Maison inspired by the design of the Bauhaus ♦ ︎
The Staatliches Bauhaus was a German art school operating from 1919 to 1933. In 2019, in fact, the hundredth anniversary of the foundation is celebrated. The Bauhaus was combined craftsmanship and fine arts, and was famous for its innovative design, which linked aesthetics and industrial product. The German Maison Niessing is the one that more than any other was inspired by that great school of design. Its jewels are ingeniously simples, like the famous Ring designed by Walter Wittek, since 2001 recognized as copyrighted work of art.

Now the German brand is launching another jewel inspired by the Bauhaus, Niessing Cube. It is a pendant for a necklace or earrings, which changes according to the way it is worn. It is composed of four rectangles of white or yellow gold interconnected to form a cuboid structure. When the Niessing Cube slips on the necklace or on the circles of the earrings, the geometric order “turns into dynamic chaos”. In short, a jewel between geometric volume and dice game, because the shape changes with the body movements of the wearer. Scommettiamo che sarebbe piaciuto anche a Walter Gropius.
