chp…? jewelry featured in exhibition at High Museum, Atlanta
The exhibition currently on view at the High Museum in Atlanta (USA) called ‘Bangles to Benches: Contemporary Jewelry and Design’ features a number of pieces from the chp…? jewelry collections.
Ranging from mass-produced to one-of-a-kind works and from hand-crafted to digitally fabricated pieces, this exhibition focuses on the scale, range and creative dexterity found in many contemporary designers’ repertoires today. Innovative contemporary jewelry is paired with other design objects — from chairs to climbing walls — created by the same designers.
This exhibition celebrates the accomplishments of key designers currently in the High’s permanent collection, including Ron Arad, Fernando and Humberto Campana, Héctor Esrawe, Johanna Grawunder, Zaha Hadid, Joris Laarman, Marc Newson, Ettore Sottsass, Jr. and Marcel Wanders. The show also highlights many of the High’s recent acquisitions by these designers and will demonstrate the range of contemporary design.
Examples of notable pairings in the exhibition include the modular Bone Structures necklace (composed of 18 leather pieces attachable by magnets) by Fernando and Humberto Campana alongside their vibrant 2010 Sushi sofa and the gold-plated clown Nose necklace by Marcel Wanders, displayed with his 2006 prototype Crochet chair made of hand-crocheted fiber and epoxy resin.
