Inspired by the eponymous shape, Octogone reinterprets this classic of formal architecture in a new way. Jewel-objects that move away from their original shape to create a new one. Dissociated, faceted, dual. A rhythmic duality for a jewel of pure beauty, giving birth to a singular intimacy within an emblematic shape.
At first glance, it is a structured object of geometric precision, presenting a comforting radicality, which then slowly starts to shift, creating a sway, a duality. A chasm between what one expects and what actually occurs… When worn, it is a slender jewel whose angles and summits are offset by the airiness of the whole. Celestial and minimalist. On closer inspection, the light crosses the jewel like a beam. The mat inside captures the light by absorbing it, the shine of the outside reflects it and reveals its brightness.
The shapes have etched precision but make for a delicate wearability. The pieces are finely honed, dedicated to the space they continually create between themselves and the skin.
