Archi Bijoux

Oscar Niemeyer by H.Stern fine jewelry - perfect design collection.

Free, lightweight designs and all the curves of the dearest and most famous brazilian architect inspired a collection of jewelry that carries his signature, created in his honor and from his own sketches.

The exceptional drawings of the architect, its curvilinear and sinuous forms were transformed into unique pieces of jewelry. 
Something timeless, like his projects.
The project of the Ibirapuera Park, which opened in São Paulo in 1954, had a sculpture that would be the São Paulo IV Centenary Monument, designed by Niemeyer. This sculpture, which provided a central rod surrounded by a spiral, was the inspiration for the creation of these earrings.

Icons of modern architecture - The three-dimensional shapes of the Alvorada Palace columns, in Brasília, inspired the creation of light earrings that seem to float on female ears.
The inspiration for the Pampulha line comes from the sinuous design of the roof of the church St. Francis of Assis in Pampulha, Belo Horizonte. The project was created by Niemeyer in the 40s at the request of Juscelino Kubitschek, the mayor of the city back then, and generated controversy for its bold forms.
The work of the architect includes unpretentious designs like the engraving on a female hand holding a four-leaf flower. A single line forms the image with extreme simplicity and poetic subtlety 

In another design, his muse holds a bird in the hand and it's such a simple beauty. Their forms have been redesigned by H.Stern with much grace and lightness, translating into gold the leaked contours of the bird's body.

*Beautiful, isn't it? The collection, launched in 2008 and relaunched in 2013 has 34 pieces in 18K yellow and white gold + diamonds and is available for purchase online at the brand's website.
