See how German jewelry house Hemmerle is among the world's leading designers changing our perception of beauty.
Weekdays and Sundays, 10am-6pm; Saturdays, 10am-9pm.
Hemmerle, the German contemporary jewelry house, has been selected to be part of the prestigious Design Triennial at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York. The Cooper Hewitt is the only American museum dedicated exclusively to historic and contemporary design, and this year’s Triennal marks the fifth instalment of its popular contemporary design exhibition series.
It focuses on "Beauty", exploring it through seven lenses: extravagant, intricate, ethereal, transgressive, emergent, elemental and transformative. Hemmerle naturally is in the Extravagant section, and pieces such as its signature Harmony bracelet and others that use unconventional materials, historic artifacts and pops of color will demonstrate Hemmerle’s challenge to traditional high jewelry.
Other jewelry designers on show are Delfina Delettrez, Jantje Fleischhut and Noa Silberman, and with more than 250 works by 62 designers in different design disciplines from around the globe, Beauty promises to be a treat for all design lovers.
