Elements Picasso earhoops.
The Elements collection explores and seeks the main form of objects. The designer wanted to go back to basics, and has let herself be inspired by nature, as well as the cubic works of Cézanne and Braque. They aimed to break the form of objects into facets and represent them in sharp angles, with the main form still perceivable.
The objects were seen from several perspectives simultaneously in order to give a rendering that was objective as possible. The designer has let herself be fascinated by the way Cubism renders shapes concrete and decoded.
”I wanted to create a jewelry collection with a feeling of Hasla Jewelry. A collection that carries my DNA and identity. A subtle homage to the mighty mountains at the foot of which I live, and a feeling of fragmented belonging. With Elements, I try to design the feeling of how we seek to be together and connect to each other. Through the Cubist style, I wish to visualize the main forms of our lives.
I’ve wanted to work with cubism for a very long time. To master the technique, you must analyze an object from several angles, and break down the shapes. It is much more demanding than it may look like in a finished piece of jewelry.
The result is characterized by “odd shapes”, and hopefully objects that lie between art and design. I am very fond of the limitless way we think about art, and the compromises we make to get a good design that can be worn by many people. I absolutely want the jewelry to be something more than an accessory. It is important to us that we make pieces that can be worn for a long time. ”
