On view during the Grand Summer Exhibition from April 26 – September 30 2012
The Grand Summer Exhibition is a showcase of contemporary Dutch Design
and Fashion in combination with historical artefacts from the Dutch Royal Archives. Built for Henriette Catharina, Princess of Anhalt-Dessau, Oranienbaum is part of the heritage of the House of Orange-Nassau. With a major conservation and refurbishment process nearing completion, the palace and its park have been restored to their former grandeur.
The exhibition features work by prominent Dutch designers like Viktor & Rolf, Gijs Bakker, Hella Jongerius, Spijkers & Spijkers, Marcel Wanders, Iris van Herpen, Ineke Hans, Scholten & Baijings and Piet Hein Eek. Young up-and-coming talent is also in evidence.

Jointed Jewels by Alissia Melka-Teichroew

Making of the Jointed Jewels:
Jointed Jewels represents a union of new and old, organic and industrial, functional and decorative. At the heart of the project is the intention to transform complex and separate elements into a new kind of whole.
It started as an exploration of ball joints, commonly found in cars and hip replacements. Alissia Melka-Teichroew had the idea of creating a ball joint -normally assembled with sepa- rate parts- as one single piece. Through the use of selective laser sintering (SLA) she was able to literally make a ball inside a ball. Hence, the industrial connecter was transformed into an object of beauty and wonder.
A clean and striking jewelry collection was created around this innovative concept. Each piece has been made with the same technique: it seems like an intricately assembled object but is in fact one single piece that was made in one go. Although the jointed pieces share the same birthing process, each item has a different identity.

Although the jointed pieces share the same birthing process, each item has a different identity. There are round, square, long and tubular forms that pick up references from recognizable icons of classic jewelry. Many of the bangles, necklaces and rings are interpretations of renaissance and Victorian jewels and there are also references to intricately made and very precious pieces by luxury brands like Bulgari and Cartier. In addition, there are multi-tiered necklaces that display connecting joints that resemble human bone structure.
