Secondome Design Gallery, Rome
15 December 2014 – 30 January 2015
Designers’ Joy is the first Contemporary Jewellery exhibition presented by Secondome Gallery,
curated by Domitilla Dardi.
The exhibition hosts privileged new creations, along with the revival of existing projects, by a diverse group of designers of different ages and cultural backgrounds. The divergent spectrum of International jewellery present in this group show is analyzed in every possible aspect by 20 international designers: Massimiliano Adami, Maria Jennifer Carew, Odoardo Fioravanti, Lanzavecchia+Wai, RuiYin Lin, Eugenia Morpurgo and Olivia de Gouveia, Nucleo, Chiara Onida, Paula, Omer Polak, Superstudio, Giò Tirotto, Zaven. Marc Newson, Ted Noten, Gijs Bakker, Paolo Ulian, Rolf Sachs for CHP. Selvaggia Armani for Bijouets.
Every jewel opens a door to explore a different concept of design and beauty; thus, a reflection upon the language of ornament, decoration and beauty. This exhibition highlights the values of research in a new area of design for most of these established artists. Breaking away from the routines of their predominant design programs, the designers involved have experimented with technology, craftsmanship, shapes, materials and new productive processes.
