Façade Bombée is the title for Studio Collect's newest line of carefully handcrafted jewelry. The main impetus is a work by Jacques Moeschal. A twentieth-century Belgian architect - slash - sculptor, best known for his monumental, rhythmic sculptures integrated into public spaces. This particular work, attached to a building, is located in the Quartier du Congres of Brussels, and is called "Les Neuf Provinces”.
Nine repetitive, massive concave, and convex volumes make up this modern bas-relief. The tension between its contrasting shapes and the empty spaces between them was translated into a series of wearable miniature sculptures in the form of rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. A similar visual language in which positive and negative shapes are alternated characterizes this collection. Just like a sculpture, a new captivating facet of the jewel reveals itself when seen from different angles.
