Experimental jewels of 14 artists during the Milan Design Week ♦︎
Milan, the capital of design for at least a week. The Milan Design Week 2018 (16-22 April) involves designers from all over the world and thousands of people who love not only the furnishings, but also the interpretation of commonly used accessories. Could they miss the jewels? No. There will be, in fact, the experimental ones in an exhibition titled No Matter Matters, curated by A / dornment, by Myriam Bottazzi, Cedric Chevalley, Lodovica Fusco, Anne Goy, Jill Herlands, Elina Honkanen, Monica Iacovenco, Beru Inou, Amira Jalet, Hyun Jiyoon, Orsolya Losonczy, Letizia May, Daniella Saraya, Asami Watanabe.
In harmony with the design week, which also hosts innovative creations, are jewels made with unconventional materials: from cement to resin, from slate to cork. Myriam Bottazzi, for example, prefers sequins. Cedric Chevalley loves a material like that of skateboarding. Lodovica Fusco is inspired by stones and natural elements that recreates through the use of molds and natural resins. Anne Goy focuses on interlocking with synthetic materials, slate, cork and leather associated with metals. Jill Herlands expresses itself concretely in his way of working metals, against the current and is inspired by the architecture of New York, while Elina Honkanen realizes her jewels with ready-made objects. Instead, Monica Iacovenco uses mixed materials, resins and woods, Beru Inou prefers glass and porcelain, Amira Jalet wants to create a jewel from the ice, through the use of water, the Korean Hyun Jiyoon loves salt, Orsolya Losonczy a mineral like the muscovite. Letizia Maggio vinyl and the ecoglass. Finally, Daniella Saraya uses epoxy resin and Asami Waranabe uses simple straw.
