so, whose a fan of michael zobel? i love his work! every piece is soooo beautiful! i’m not a huge brooch person, but his brooches are amazing! they’re more like mini-paintings than jewelry. his bracelets and rings are mini-sculptures for the wrist and finger! zobel is a german designer but his work isn’t what i typically think of as german design. when i think ‘german design’ i envision clean lines, steel, very mininalist, etc…like the designs of xen. i guess that shows what i know! zobel’s work is very clean but there’s a bit of whimsy that i wouldn’t have expected and the use of color is masterful.
so any fans of atelier zobel out there? whats your favorite piece?
