SOULMATES Lisa and Scott Cylinder first met while they were students in jewellery and goldsmithing at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. Since 1988, they have been successfully co-directing their art jewellery studio while pursuing a teaching career.

They live and work in Oley, Pennsylvania. REENCHANTING THE REALITY The artistic approach of Lisa and Scott Cylinder is guided by their unconditional respect of materials, by the work of the hand but also by their fascination for objects of all kinds (found objects, tools, musical instruments) that they deconstruct and take out of their original context to reinterpret them in post-modern compositions. SEE THEIR WORKS ? Their works are in numerous museums and private collections: the Racine Art Museum, Racine (WI), the Museum of Contemporary Arts & Design (NY), The Gregg Museum at North Caroline State University, (NC), and the Craft Emergency Relief Fund (CERF) “Bird in Hand” Miniature Collection (MD).

ABOUT Born in Haarlem in 1970, Katja Prins is a Dutch artist. After her training in traditional techniques of jewellery at the Vakschool of Schoonhoven, she studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam (1993-1997). Today she lives and works in Amsterdam. HUMAN/MACHINE Since her beginnings as an art jeweller, Katja Prins has been continuously reflecting on the ambiguous relationship between human and machine. By questioning our relationship to technologies, by exploring the question of hybridity, she has gradually developed a repertoire of forms whose  rigor and sharp beauty gives her works the evocative force of signals. SEE HER WORKS ? Her works are in numerous private collections and permanent museums collections : MAD Museum in New York, Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Museum of Modern Art in Arnhem, CODA Museumin Apeldoorn, Schmuck Museum in Pforzheim, among others. The gallery will show a selection of her original works at the occasion of the 2017 edition of Paris Design Week.     For quite some time, my work has been about the relationship between us, as human beings (our human bodies), and technology. When you think of it, this relationship is really intimate. Just look around you. It’s everywhere. We sleep, sit, eat, drink, move, and […]

ABOUT Born in 1962 à San Giovanni Teatino, Fabrizio Tridenti is an Italian art jeweller. After graduating in 1982 from Istituto Statale d’Arte, Penne, he spent a few years as an apprentice in a couple of reknown workshops, before establishing his studio in  1993 in Pescara. Today he lives and works in Vasto. STRUCTURING CHAOS The aesthetic language developed by Fabrizio Tridenti reflects in a frontal way the reality of the contemporary industrial and technological environment. Using poor materials, usually industrial waste, he composes, out of chaos, monumental and powerfully designed objects. By refuting the traditional aspects of jewelry such as functional, formal and aesthetic values, he moves his reflection on the field of conceptual art and proposes a wider field of investigation for the jewel. SEE HIS WORKS ? His works have been exhibited in many galleries and museums internationally, such as MAD Museum in New York, the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich,  the Museo degli Argenti, Palazzo Pitti, in Florence, the Amber Museum in Gdañsk, the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, Oregon. The gallery will show a selection of his works at the occasion of the "Holy Tools !" exhibition, during edition 2017 of the Paris Design Week. […]

ABOUT Born in Barcelona in 1966, Xavier Monclús is an art jeweller. Soon after his studies at the Massana School in Barcelona, his work has been presented in galleries and museums in Europe, United States, Canada and Japan. Since 2013, he lives and works in Maó, Menorca island, Spain. IMAGE & NARRATION For more than 25 years, Xavier Monclús has developed a very personal style, both narrative and figurative, inspired by everyday life. Animals, architecture or objects inhabit his works thus creating a tender, humorous universe with surrealist accents. In recent years, probably influenced by the popular architecture of Menorca, the island where he now lives, his work evolved towards more refined, minimalist compositions gradually abandoning the narrative complexity of his previous production to concentrate on the essence of geometric forms. SEE HIS WORKS ? His work is represented in numerous catalogs and books on jewellery. His works can be seen in the Françoise van den Bosch Foundation, the Netherlands and the Museu del Disseny in Barcelona, Spain. The gallery will show a selection of his works at the occasion of the "Holy Tools !" exhibition, during edition 2017 of the Paris Design Week.
