CHRISTOPHER BOOTS re-interprets his classic ORP design to celebrate 165 years of Kozminsky, Melbourne’s leading bespoke jewellery designersPosted 01 Dec 2016
Kozminsky is 165 years young this year. To celebrate, Melbourne’s most loved Jeweller is collaborating with LOCAL DESIGNERS to showcase 7 of Australia’s brightest interior, furniture and lighting designers with a group show upstairs at the Salon, where each designer will showcase a 1/1 piece designed specifically to celebrate Kozminsky’s milestone.
Products on show at this prestigious event range from a beautiful 1/1 Round Diamond rug by celebrated stylist/ designer Emma Elizabeth to a stunning high mirror finish Ross Gardam designed light.
Chris has carefully crafted a re-interpretation of his classic ORP pendant light design. Oblique Rhombic Prism celebrates sacred geometry, ascribing symbolic and sacred meanings to geometric proportions and shapes, and associated with the belief system that a higher consciousness is the creator of the world. Geometry used in the design and construction of religious structures such as temples, mosques and churches are considered sacred; though ORP points to a more quantum based consciousness permeating all existence beyond human projections.
The use of Lapis Lazuli in this artwork references the ancient and powerful qualities of this semi-precious stone; with a clear indication that ORP has become a piece of jewellery on a larger scale to celebrate the Kozminsky story expressed through the craftsmanship of Christopher Boots.
