With surprisingly playful and trendy ideas Ulrike Poelk breaks with old habits. Her attraente necklace (meaning “attractive” in Italian), for example, can be worn in many different ways around the neck or on the arm. Invisible, integrated magnets make for smaller or larger nodes when the wearer plays with the necklace. What might be regarded as disruptions, however, are playful design elements that can be dispersed by nothing more than a gentle pull.
