Novus Tribus- 2011//
The Novus Tribus collection was inspired by a vision of a distant tribe far into the future, performing a wedding ceremony.
Primitive tribes use nature to sustain their lives and maintain their lifestyles. Projected across a modern trajectory, the futuristic tribe uses ingenuity to create art from industrial waste and the lack of natural resources. In this envisioned wedding ceremony body decorations and jewels are those made treasures.
The collection is characterized by a blend of hard geometric shapes with soft and feminine motifs. Raw metals, plastic, wood, crystals, satin ribbons and screws are combined in designs that transform traditional concepts of tribal jewelry into an imagined future.
