Retail Interior: Ileana Makri Jewellery Store by Kois Associated Architects

The materials used were carefully selected, working with natural unprocessed pieces of metal, glass, timber and stone – a grey sedimentary rock was used for its internal composition, alluding to the mechanisms of memory. Bronze was applied due to its ability to convey and transform light, while black metal and timber give a sense of rhythm, texture and colour, fusing the elements into a coherent whole. Seriously, can you handle it all? Extreme love. Ileana Makri Jewellery Store by Kois Associated Architects Kois Associated Architects: Source:

Fashion: Kinetic Jewellery Collection by Studio Elke

The Kinetic Tarts are the result of a collaboration between Kakso and Margulis, who worked together to create edible versions of his artworks for food publication So Good. Margulis, a Miami-based mixed-media artist, forms his sculptures from layers of colourful plastic sheets – creating a geometric pattern that changes depending on the viewing angle. Kasko, keen to retain the qualities of Margulis' work, enlisted the artist to sketch different ideas, and worked from his drawings to create a series of edible sculptures. Industrial cutting
