2005 – What’s Luxury
In a spectacular setting, referring to historical luxuries, the contemporary interpretations of luxury by international designers for the What’s Luxury collection of chp…? were shown as samples of topical jewelry for the first time in at the Salone del Mobile in Milano.
The theme ‘what is luxury?’ inspired the 17 international designers to design reproducible jewelry of an outspoken character, offering fresh and humanistic views on modern wo/man’s desire for luxuries. The jewelry doesn’t necessarily refer to costly, expensive, extraordinary and rare commodities, in stead they can have a temporary character that just pleases the senses or mind for a moment.
