Architecture and jewelery, symbiosis at an exhibition in London ♦ ︎
Architecture and jewelry: who copied who? The question arises since architects and jewelers exist, that is always. There are building designers who have added decorations to walls and cornices that might be on a necklace or ring. And there are jewelery designers who have been inspired by the volumes of architecture. This theme, in London, there is an exhibition along with the 2017 London Design Festival. To organize it is Contemporary Applied Arts, an association that aims to promote and support quality craftsmanship in Britain and which brings together about 350 designers. Contemporary Applied Arts exhibits jewels inspired by architecture, with pieces that look like palaces, or simply recall the spaces of an arena or a theater. Like the Ute Decker gold and silver brooches, or the reduction of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao by Vicki Ambery-Smith. The exhibition is located in central London at Southwark Gallery.
