Bucharest Architecture Annual 2019

*Award for the Object Design Section

 

Our jewellery design proposal won the award for the Object Design section. The i{n}stance jewellery collection is born from a process based on feedback between concept, geometry and material, all of which are translated into code. The pieces explores the aesthetic interpretation of mathematical functions and progressions. Rigid geometry is transformed through parametric variations in order to become ornament.

SIERAAD International Jewellery Fair 2019

 

i{n}stance was one of the emerging  contemporary brands exhibited at Sieraad- 2019 edition. SIERAAD is a fair where artisans from all over the world can present their jewellery directly and in person to shops, galleries and consumers. Artists bring to the fair  unique, personally designed and crafted pieces of jewellery. Here, the emphasis is on jewellery as pieces of art in which ideas are packaged in materials such as rubber, textile, photos, plastics, wood or ceramics, as well as silver and gold. Artist-designers from all corners of the globe, including highly talented emerging designers, are exhibiting exciting work not found anywhere else.

Autor Jewellery Fair 2019

 

i{n}stance as an emerging digital design jewellery studio made its debut to the public at the Author fair – 2019 edition. Autor is an exclusive scene for contemporary jewelry, concepts and encounters. It is the space where both functional and conceptual approaches to wearing jewlery can be seen and touched. In each edition we are defining “the sweet spot” where design, art and emotions meet. The selected artists explore different themes such as wearable versus statement pieces, cultural differences and meanings, authenticity and personal filter, accepted beauty and unusual aesthetics.

Micro digital fabrication

We have been invited to participate in the igloo magazine edition that tackles digital fabrication. In our interview we discuss the different levels from our practice where we use parametric design and digital fabrication tools. We explore different scales where we apply our digital knowledge, from architectural design using BIM, going thru object desing and we find our thiriving place working in micro digital fabrication -in jewellery making.

Romanian Design Week 2019

 

Our Aggregate Cells luminaires was part of the Romanian Design Week 2019 exibition- in the Object Design section.  The Aggregate Cells luminaires combines computational design, digital fabrication means and subjective aesthetics. The intent was to explore methods of aggregation of volumetric cells with a regular repetitive geometry that are set free by deformation. Thus, cells lose their uniformity, but maintain geometric relations. By transforming stable and uniform structures, a familiar but altered image is gained, focused on topological deformation and on the new redefined relations between cells.

igloo magazine #179

PARAMETRICISM – HANDS ON

We have been invited by Igloo media to contribute to an yearly review of parametric design with links to Romania. The interview, conducted gracefully by the editor in chief, Francoise Pamfil, has led us to deliver our architecture office’s story and how we came to teach parametric design to students and young architects. We also disccused our work and how to embed computational tools into an architectural practice.

Innovative practices and projects in Romania/Zeppelin

 

Our media partners at Zeppelin have  published a collection of articles that follows the innovative practices and project in Romania and invited us to be part of this creative community. We write about our digital design process, our robotic art installations and about our jewellery. Zeppelin is an architecture and urban culture magazine, but also a platform of reflexion and intervention upon the city, a design studio, several books, dozens of exhibitions, hundreds of conferences and events.

Romanian Design Week 2015

*Nomitated for the object design section at the Bucharest Architecture Annual 2015

 

Our team has a lengthy experience in using computational tools within the architecture and product design premises. Ionut and Dana’s Quad light, alongside other of their designs , have been exhibited within the Romanian Design Week, organized by The Institute. The Institute is an ecosystem for creative industries in Romania. It creates and organises events and brings together designers, entrepreneurs and the audience of creative industries.

Arhitectura magazine #655

 

The DIGITAL_SILVER jewelry collection explores how computational design and digital fabrication can transform the traditional craft of silver casting. The intention was to maintain a traditional process of silver casting, casting, but modifying the method by which the mold is obtained, both at the creative and material level. Thus we used 3d printed models with lower resolution and more accessible materials.
