Skein Collection Jewellery with Caspita
- November – 2013
Zaha Hadid Architects have collaborated with Swiss goldsmiths Caspita on a collection that combine innovative design technologies and the highest level of craftsmanship. These multi-faceted lattice pieces explore the intricate yet extremely strong cellular structures within nature. Each piece has been further shaped by ergonomic considerations in a dialogue that defines the formal language of the collection and expresses the exciting new possibilities and potential for working to the finest detail in gold.
The Skein collection includes finely crafted rings and bracelets in 18 carat gold, some inlaid with precious stones within the delicate latticework structure, and launched at the Zaha Hadid Design Gallery in London on November 28th during the Caspita pop-up store. The collection moves to Miami to be showcased in the Colette art drive-thru installation at Alchemist from December 2nd to 8th throughout Art Basel Miami.
