Drawing inspiration from the Bauhaus ideal, namely the inventive use of geometric shapes, innovation in materials and a commitment to minimalist design. The six new inspirational designs include QUADRA, CASTOR, JUNO, LIGO, FREYA and INSPIRA variably named after observatories, spacecraft orbits, stars, black holes, constellations and goddesses of mythology.
Inspired by iconic 20th century kinetic art, the Stellar line echoes the architectural principles of balance, rhythm, and harmony to symbolize the delicate art of achieving balance in our busy lives. Stellar designs feature authentic diamond dust embedded in black-tinted concrete. The sparkle of real diamond residue, re-purposed into jewelry, elevates the tastefulness of the minimalist designs. Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted in the designer/maker studio, resulting in subtle variations that make each piece unique.
Architectural details inspired the beginnings of the avant-garde Concrete Collection. KONZUK was struck by the visual contrast and the difference in textures between stainless steel and concrete. This is incorporated the same bold aesthetic into rings, earrings, cufflinks and bracelets. The result is a an incredibly architectural and sculptural line of jewelry.
The Facet Collection redefines the typical diamond engagement ring. Prevailing notions dictate that diamonds take center stage but the simplicity and stunning elegance of the tension setting— with the diamond—provides an undeniable allure that’s often disregarded in the design of the most important piece of jewelry you’ll ever wear.
For nearly 20 years KONZUK has drawn inspiration from contemporary works of art and architecture. The new Discus collection re-interprets the surface textures of sculptures by Richard Serra in jewelry forged from concrete and steel. The Discus collection is based on a series of over-sized discs — formed by casting concrete into 2mm lathed stainless steel, then refining each piece by hand to create a one-of-a-kind finish. These unique motifs appear in bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and more.
