A specific moment – 17.04.2018-22.04.2018 – and place – 45°28`46.577 9°13`2.586 – in time giving a glimpse into the experimental research going on in the Jewellery Department at Pforzheim University. No animals or humans were harmed in the SOdA Lab research. While full precautions were taken, some materials and machines which had volunteered were sacrificed in the name of progress. The results of these experiments are dedicated to their selfless contribution to the global pursuit of knowledge, aesthetics and happiness.

We have been exhibiting jewellery and everyday objects (Schmuck & Objekte der Alltagskultur, SOdA) during Fuorisalone Milano for over 10 years. In 2018, we were part of Ventura Future, exhibiting in abandoned buildings originally part of the Politecnico di Milano pharmaceutical department. From the jewellery labs of Pforzheim University to the old Milanese scientific labs – a mutual spirit of curiosity, exploration and aesthetic development.
