Amberif Design Award 2014 – exhibition of the award-winning works in the International Amber Jewellery Design Competition “Materia Prima” C

AMBERIF design award

The watchword of this year’s Amberif Design Award is not just the alchemic representation of the primal substance able to take on the perfect form but also a direct reference to the contemporary idea of sustainability in design which respects local tradition, refers to the historical heritage of functional arts and elevates natural materials. Prized already in ancient Rome, Baltic amber is predisposed, as a substance close to the ideal, to be transformed into an original design. The unique nature of each individual nugget has always provoked artists to look for the right form, interpret associations, make use of its internal structure, colours, shades, transparencies and natural peculiarities preserved for the lucky finder over the past 40 million years. In an era of disposable products, it is sometimes worthwhile to look back to pre-history and fix your sight on the elusive aspects of both the physical and the metaphysical. The material, the medium itself usually gives designers a hint towards their first decisions; let us try to listen to this hint and follow through with it. We expect jewellery (without any functional limitations at all) in which the amber will be a remarkably strong justification for highlighting its most natural properties.

EXPO ‘Aeon Profit / Piano Forte’ – Velvet Da Vinci gallery, San Francisco (US) – 5 Fevr.-9 Mars 2014

Velvet Da Vinci is proud to present the US debut of Aeon Profit / Piano Forte, an installation of wearable objects made from reincarnated piano parts by the Swedish jewelry design collective A5.

The show, which has previously exhibited in both Stockholm and Munich, will run from February 5th through March 9th, 2014.  An Opening Reception will take place on Friday February 7th, from 6 to 8 pm.

Musical instruments and jewelry share several fundamental similarities: a rich tradition of craftsmanship, function, ornamentation, and inherent value. Both are meant to last generations and to be passed from individual to individual. Thus when an instrument or a piece of jewelry is no longer wanted or needed it falls into a particular space of limbo, the owner wishes to part with the item yet at the same time hopes that it will continue its existence. It is in this way that the group A5, Adam Grinovich, Romina Fuentes, and Annika Pettersson, came into contact with a piano.

EXPO ‘Marta Boan: The appearance of jewels’ – Four Gallery, Göteborg (Sweden) – 7-22 Fevr. 2014

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Four (SE),Marta BOAN (ES),Suede (SE) — bijoucontemporain @ 1:20

« Marta Boan: The appearance of jewels » – 7–22 février

Basic geomatric shapes, lines and points create a language speaking of chaos and order. Volumes growing into a minimalistic expression that communicates and accentuates a figure.
The jewellery of Marta Boan is an elegant explanation of a complex surrounding world. The thin and seemingly fragile objects make the observer want to come closer to discover the details and the strength of the material. Mathematics and art in a beautiful balance.

Welcome to meet Marta Boan and see the exhibition at Four Friday February 7, 17.00-21.00

On Thursday February 6, 16.00 Marta Boan will make a lecture at HDK – University of Arts and Crafts and Design, please mail karin@foursweden.com for more detailed information.
