Intro
A-Gallery is hosting the exhibition of Into Niilo, a jewelry artist from Moscow. Precious Parts jewelry collection is about self-love and self-acceptance. It’s a small research about being a human, an effort to accept and embrace it with all the vulnerability, fragility and imperfection.

Artist list

Into Niilo
It’s an attempt at philanthropy, starting with a physical acceptance. This is a personal attempt of the designer Into Niilo to love and understand the human body. Precious Parts is a sensual journey that starts from the little – loving the shape of your nail plate and nipples, toes, belly buttons, every single little curve and wrinkle of thy body, the charm of bends, sticking bones, goosebumps, body hairs, and birthmarks. 

Many various materials were used to create the collection – metals (brass, silver, gold), precious natural stones (pearls, Ethiopian opal, turquoise, lapis, obsidian, labrador, rutilated quartz, chrysoprase, ametrine, topaz, agate), and artificial materials (opal, tourmaline quartz, opal quartz, ulexite).

For the usual surrealistic twist of Into Niilo’s brand into|into the designer carved teeth from baroque pearls, MOP, ulexite and artificial opal. For the nail rings, a variety of cuts dictated by the shape of fingernails were used and the designer chose stones that have an obvious stone look and also imitate different manicure styles. Various techniques were used to create nipple and belly button brooches and collarbone necklace. The designer cast the brooches in silver and then gold-plated them. Electroforming in brass was used for the necklace which was also then gold plated. Each item of the new collection is a true piece of art, a philosophical reinterpretation of everything natural with a hint of dark humor and infinite self-love.


About Into Niilo
Into Niilo (they/them) is an artist and jewelry designer based in Moscow, Russia.
After graduating from Moscow State University of Design and Technology (MSUDT) in 2013, as an accessory designer, they made their master's degree in Footwear Design at London College of Fashion (LCF), University of Arts London (UAL).
Straight after the designer realized that they are no longer interested in footwear but have more interest towards small, wearable architectural and sculptural forms. That’s how they launched their own brand into|into (in 2015) of experimental accessories and later switched to fine jewelry primarily.
Starting from 2016 Into Niilo started to take part in various showrooms of Paris Fashion Week (twice a year). In 2018 they signed a contract with the NOB agency and starting from 2019, they took part in the NOB showroom during Paris, Milan and Tokyo Fashion Weeks.
Into Niilo’s brand into|into takes ideas and principles of the exact sciences and experiments from scientific cognition of different fields like physics, chemistry, natural philosophy, cosmology, astronomy, anatomy, philosophy, etc. and tries to transfer them into the art and design field. The refrain in the name into|into is borrowed from English [intu:] and Finnish [into:] languages ​​and translates as «internal inspiration». And the brand is inspired by the outworld – nature and the cognitive process by man, poetics and the splendor of forms, the very essence of things and their contents.
