The Bauhaus interpreted by Niessing: luxury jewelry in the minimalist version of the historic design ♦ ︎
The Staatlitches Bauhaus was a school of architecture and art born in 1919 in Weimar, Germany. And it is not excessive to say that the Bauhaus marked the beginning of modern design. The idea of combining functionality with simplicity, which together form a pleasant aesthetic, was born there. Closed the school with the advent of Nazism in 1935, the idea of the Bauhaus is not dead. Indeed, 2019 celebrates the hundred years of that cultural revolution. And the echo is also heard in jewelry. Particularly thanks to the jewelery Maison that has always been the closest to that way of understanding design: Niessing.
Simplicity and beauty, in fact, are the paths taken by the German brand, famous in particular for its rings that hold a diamond, proposed 40 years ago and now redesigned. Niessing is openly inspired by the minimalism of the Bauhaus, according to which form follows function, and one does not forget to celebrate the century since the birth of the most famous design school in the world. For example with the Niessing Coil necklaces, with a soft metallic thread that is wrapped like an industrial product, punctuated by seven, nine or 11 diamonds. Or with stackable rings, perhaps with gold in different colors. Many ways to remember the Bauhaus, but above all to renew the lesson it has left. Giulia Netrese
