Inspiration of this exclusive jewellery series is the masterpieces of Louis Kahn, one of the greatest architects of the world. The most eye-catching feature of his architecture, the sharp, geometrical forms of the windows and sunlight openings have become a concrete reality and find their expressions in these unique jewellery pieces. Emptiness turns into massive, concrete fullness. The items are made by a mix of clay-concrete and used electronic materials. For feeling lightness of clay and hardness of concrete.
