Swiss jewelry designer Suzanne Syz collaborates with artist Kerstin Brätsch at Design Miami / Basel ♦ ︎
The Maison is called Suzanne Syz Art Jewels. The name itself indicates two interests: jewelry and art. Usually these two aspects are cultivated by Suzanne Syz with her work: creative, surprising jewels that overcome difficult technicals.
But sometimes the Geneva designer chooses to focus on the other aspect, art. Suzanne Syz, for example, will collaborate with the artist Kerstin Brätsch at Design Miami / Basel, from 11 to 16 June. It’s her fourth year at the fair and Suzanne invited Kerstin Brätsch to collaborate with the Syz Art Jewels stand, producing a wallpaper based on images of marbled rocks, with 3D renderings of overlapping dinosaurs, which symbolize an ancient extinct life in contrast to the new technology.
Brätsch has also designed six unique amorphous glass jewelry cases filled with volcanic stones. For Brätsch, the connections between these natural materials create a dialogue as old as the diamonds present at the beginning of mother earth. Those stones used for jewels survive until today, exhaling their telluric vibrations and their vibrant presence. Past Miami Design / Basel collaborations have included Sylvie Fleury, Alex Israel and John Armeleder.
