“How many lines does it take to express an idea’s central quintessence? What is the essence of things? How can I clearly express an object’s complexity?” These are the questions that have been driving Sally Kiss, the owner of KISSdesign, for a long time. While she was still studying at Trier University of Applied Sciences, they inspired her to specialize in the computer-aided serial production of designer jewelry. Following the motto of “Keep it smart and simple,” she has reduced the three-dimensional structures of cut gemstones to two-dimensionality in the pieces of her “Cut” line. Reminiscent of drawings for the relevant cuts, these pieces are manufactured in stainless steel or gold using the microlaser technique. In 2016, Sally Kiss won the “Red Dot: Best of the Best” award in the Product Design category. The prices range from 150 to 200 euros.
