It is not surprising that Frank Gehry’s fantastic buildings are visited by so many tourists and architects. During my architectural university studies I visited some of his buildings. These are really remarkable works. Now I am looking into another section of his career. I tried to find out how his architecture had inspired famous jeweller Tiffany & Co. and how the greatness of his work was displayed in a smaller scale.
By the 20th and 21st century we can recognise the forms of nature on our everyday objects. What is common in the work of architects became jewellery designers and the activity of artists using the forms of nature on the everyday objects? Our first reaction: there is nothing in common. But if you think it over, it is simple: their scales.
It is so exciting to recognise the parallel between architects jewelleries and buildings. As I used to work as an architect for several years and I switched to design jewelleries, I am interested in how other architects design jewellery with this scale difference. The jewelleries or the jewellery collections designed by famous architects are often similar to their buildings designed at the same time. Well, it works in both ways, you can recognise their style in their jewelleries too.
I search for these parallels in Star architects and their jewelleries series. Now I am starting with Zaha Hadid star architect.
My beloved Red Baroque ring was published in November 2016 issue of British Vogue magazine.
World travellers are often recommended to look up at the sky during their trips and pay attention to the unique architectural solutions of a city. As an architect I often do it without recommendation, because each building can tell a lot about its environment or its people. This is how I’ve found a magical building in Japan, in the luxurious shopping and commercial district of Tokyo (Ginza). All the important global fashion companies are represented here and this is the centre of shops offering luxury products. Walking in this amazing neighbourhood, suddenly I noticed a miracle-building.
