The Accessories & Jewellery section features recently developed techniques, unusual materials and amazing forms of expression. The Accessories & Jewellery area in Hall 11.1 focuses on the work of 21 designers.
Among the objects on display are jewellery items from Czech designer Alena Willroth who uses polyethylene film to produce unusual micro creations. For her latest collection, “Slast”, she developed a special welding process.
Designer Wladimir Arutti has developed a special cut for his latest handbag designs. For his first product series, “Trillion”, the fashion guru has taken inspiration from Japanese cities and has made use of architectural elements.
Laura Christmann on the other hand uses simple geometrical shapes for her jewellery which she combines in ever changing variations. In addition to traditional goldsmithing skills, she uses modern techniques such as 3D printing.
The Talents area for Modern Crafts in Hall 9.0 is where 22 artisans are showcasing their individual pieces and small series. Among them is Martin Schlotz whose pots bear witness to the unusual ways in which he uses glaze to produce special surface textures. Veronika Watzková and Stanislav Holý are presenting “Bon”, their first collection, which combines Czech glassblowing with delicate jewellery design.
The abstract geometric ornamentation and surreal landscape motifs of the “Mimesis” fabric collection from Verena Rempel are based on photographs of the artist’s hands and fingers in various poses.
