Region : Switzerland

Conceptual Model

This is a collaboration with CSEM, Swiss industrial research, and development organization.
Focusing on the beauty of silicon, which is used for solar panels, this jewelry expresses the universe in seven colors that change depending on the point of view. The motif is inspired by the round windows found in Genkou-an, a Zen Buddist temple in Japan. The round windows are a cut-out of the four seasons and represent everything in this world.

スイスの産業研究開発機関であるCSEM社のためにデザインしたジュエリーコレクションです。ソーラーパネルに使用されているシリコンの美しさに着目し、視点によって変化する7色のカラーで宇宙を表現しています。モチーフとなったのは、日本の禅宗寺院である源光庵にある丸窓で、丸い窓は四季を切り取り、この世のすべてを表しています。
