Mey and Boaz Kahn (IL) -  Sponge jewelries

« This series was made in Berlin, in an old silversmith workshop. We manufactured there all of the metal parts and added the natural sponge. We were inspired by the animal world, especially while thinking of the horns as an accessories. In the process, we were looking for the suitable material that like the horn and the beard, has a strong impression,  that is growing slowly and impulsive and that has an organic nature. After long searching we found the natural sponge as the right material. » (

(exchange program at Idar-Oberstein – « I came to Idar-Oberstein, because I like to with stones and I think that german design is very good. Another reason for being here is, to find other ways to work and meet interesting people. The most important differences for me are: Total availability of useing all the facilities and tools of the school. The strong support of the professors and teachers. The good working environment and competition with other students. Presentations of students works at the end of each semester in front of everyone in the school. After my exchange I felt fmore free in the design and use of materials. I think it’s very positive to see the different ways that each student takes in his work and how these ways can be developed. »)

COUP de COEUR ! ‘FRAGILE’ by Mey & Boaz KAHN

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,,Israel (IL),Mey & Boaz KAHN (IL) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:33

« Mey and Boaz Kahn were born in Israel and live in Jerusalem. They met during their studies at Bezalel, Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem and got married after the second year. “Fragile” was the first project they were working on together.
The hammer hanged above the K in our logo, represents the value of work and creation. It is one of the first working tools. It also symbolizes an active attitude of the designer that brings cultural issues into the daily talk, we manufacture most of our products in-house in our studio and we develop them through a process that begins with a practical research with the materials.
Design, for us, is a field that lay on the border of art. We don’t believe that all of the products should be designed in purpose to make our life easier or more comfortable. We want our design to surround its users with stories and emotions, hope and fantasies, questions and ferry tales. We believe that good design must reveal cultural issues and ask questions about our way of living. »

« This ceramic pendant looks like a closed tiny box when you buy it (pic no.5). After you snap it in the middle, you will discover a golden chain is pulling out of it. You wear it on the neck by connecting the two halfes using the magnet closer.
The Magnetic Necklace is part of a series called FRAGILE. each one of the products in this series must be broken by the user to become usefull. The first product of this series, FRAGILE Salt & Pepper Shaker won the 1st price of Designboom international competition among 4843 designers:
When was the last time you emphatically broke something? FRAGILE Magnetic Necklace offers you the opportunity to do so!
Designed and made as a single piece, the FRAGILE Necklace requires the user to break it in order for it to be able to fulfill its functionality.
Breaking is an experience of impulsive outburst, but this time is an act that builds rather than destroys.
In a world of products whose shape is completely dictated by the designer, the FRAGILE Necklace enables the user to complete the design themselves. The act of breaking leaves its mark on the design giving it its final, unique, one-of-a-kind appearance. «
