Launching Sibylle von Munster’s follow up collection, “Figure”
Ever true to her love of geometric abstraction, Paris based jewellery designer Sibylle von Muster has pursued her artistic exploration, developing forms and materials in her second collection named “Figure”. She instigates once again a dialogue of curves and straight lines, full and empty space, transparency and brilliance in her ethereal jewellery imbued with light through a fusion of gold and rock crystal.
Her source of inspiration is the image of crystal clear water with its beautiful reflections of light. The architectural construction of the pieces is reminiscent of the lighting created by the designer Michael Anastassiades, and more especially his “Mobile Chandelier” – a range of suspended lights launched in 2008 – minimalist creations and pure lines. In Sybille von Munster’s creations, the curves evoke a feeling of lightness and freedom, contrasting with the rigour of the geometry that supports them. Sibylle has dreamt up a yellow and white gold set of thirty or so rings, cufflinks, bracelets, earrings and necklaces enriched with gemstones and pearls. With this second collection, Sybille is reinforcing her architectural language into artistic jewellery pieces to be worn every day.
The cufflink is the brand ’s signature piece, designed as a construction of graphic lines opening onto mini spheres of rock crystal; a double choker in gold of pure lines set with diamonds; linear earrings overlaid with pearls: the roundness of the gemstones is chosen to balance the fine linear work. A series of loop earrings, pendant earrings and clip earrings have been developed in the same vein. Precious craftsmanship is undertaken by an artisan jeweller from the Valenza region in Italy.
Jewellery that harmoniously occupies space between modern design and traditional craftsmanship.
