Thread: Gehry the Jeweler

  1. #1

    Post Gehry the Jeweler

    What's with architects as jewelry designers. I could always see FL Wright as a furniture designer, especially when I visit some of his homes like Fallingwater.

    Frank's headlining a current art exhibit in Cincinnati focusing on Tiffany and their designers.

    The complete Gehry collection from Tiffany.

    From arcspace:

    The Gehry Collection
    Tiffany & Co.

    A dynamic and original style of jewelry.

    The Gehry Collection is based on Gehry’s lifelong obsession with art. Just as he has built profoundly brilliant works of architecture set in a myriad of landscapes, so does he turn to the most intimate of all the arts, jewelry design, creating provocative new forms scaled perfectly to the body.

    “The idea of designing jewelry has intrigued me for a long time, particularly the notion of creating shapes on a whole new scale. Jewelry is an art form and it’s an interesting one in that it is a very personal expression of the wearer’s style and personality.”
    Frank Gehry

    Frank Gehry utilizes an unusual array of materials, such as black gold, pernambuco wood and cocholong stone, in his collection. Along with sterling silver, diamonds and gemstones, these materials define six intriguing motifs inspired by structural elements, childhood memories, renaissance masters and contemporary painters.

    Michael Graves did lots of stuff for the Italian co. Alessi.

    This clock looks pretty dreadful now, but it was kind of cool back in 1986:

    Michael Graves might have been considered THE star-chitect of the 1980s.

    It actually looks like a very early Gehry. Circa 1980's Gehry.

    Looks like a circa 1980s Graves to me.

    Early Gehry was almost indistinguishable from Graves.

    Yeah, I know. I was just being a bit caustic.
