Intro
(...) The group 70m2 has asked jewelry designers, from Italy and abroad, to create an object of light, which may also decorate, illuminate the home not only the person. The importance of the presence of light in architecture, interior design and in the jewelry field is the unifying element, and the theme of the exhibition. (...)
The architectural group 70m2 decided to propose a rendezvous with contemporary jewelry also this year, after the success of the event “Da materia a gioiello” presented in the exhibition season of last year. It’s just from the opening of the 2010 exhibition that the idea of repeating the experience
has been circulating among the participants and the organizers. But this time they wanted to contaminate both the expertises of architecture and jewelry. Light seemed to offer an opportunity of connection between two fields apparently so distant but which are both witness to the evolution of civilization from its origin to the present day.

The group 70m2 has asked jewelry designers, from Italy and abroad, to create an object of light, which may also decorate, illuminate the home not only the person. The importance of the presence of light in architecture, interior design and in the jewelry field is the unifying element, and the theme of the exhibition. Some of the artists involved in this “challenge” have started from the idea of adorning the body so they created a jewel that can be worn and when placed on its support will also light up the surrounding space. Some others have created real jewel-like lamps. The qualities of contemporary jewelry, the artisan and sculptural skills and the attention to detail will be found in this collection of unique pieces never shown before. The exhibition will be travelling.
