Fascinated by mathematical structures and minimalist design, Antonia Frey-Vorhammer and Simon Vorhammer combine digital and analogue methods to create their jewelry. Crafted from 750 gold and marketed under the Sian Design label, their collections are inspired by nature and combine simplicity with complex geometry. Basic shapes and smooth surfaces merge seamlessly into doubly curved surfaces and grid structures that cannot be achieved by traditional methods. Each piece is first assembled from wax components formed via 3D printing. This positive shape serves as the basis for a plaster cast into which molten precious metal is poured. Meticulous reworking by hand endows each piece with a lively surface.
