The German designer Barbara Schulte-Hengesbach, famous for her kinetic jewels, passes the delivery to her daughter Claudia ♦ ︎
Kinetic jewels stop. Or, better, they take a little rest their creator, the German designer Barbara Schulte-Hengesbach, who after 30 years has decided to put down the pencil and hand over to her daughter Claudia Schmeddinge and her partner, Andreas Lehmann. The Dusseldorf gallery that has exhibited his creations, has therefore lowered the shutters, but only to renew and make an appointment in March 2018. Curiously, the designer who prefers the refined movements of rings, necklaces and bracelets has announced that at the age of 71 will dedicate to her favorite hobby: fishing, in the Netherlands (but without giving up a role of advisor on her former activity).
The professional history of Barbara Schulte-Hengesbach began in 1971, after a jewelry design school. Then, she soon began to design the jewels that have become a sort of design icon: kinetic jewels. These are almost always rings in 750 yellow gold, with frames that move without visible joints or hinges. It is not easy. This is why the designer won the number of prizes. Now all that remains is to wait for the new collections this time signed by the couple Schmedding-Lehmann, who for years has joined Barbara Schulte-Hengesbach in her work. Giulia Netrese
