Blossoming geometries: 'Signs of Fiction' by Lior Shulak
Even jewelry evolves. Into futuristic circuits of lines with the minimalism of contemporary graphic design and the elegant essential geometries of Art Déco re-interpreted for today.
These could be the inspirations for "Signs of Fiction", a collection of jewelry and accessories with which young designer Lior Shulak (1987) graduated from Shenkar College in Tel Aviv.
The Israeli designer plays around with new connections between lines and surfaces, searching for an original geometric language that strikes a balance between calligraphy, movement and asymmetry.
The pieces of jewelry, stylized in the form of signs and marks, are experimental in the way they evidence parts of the body and the space surrounding it, through minimal and linear surfaces.
Crafted with a traditional goldsmith technique, Lior Shulak’s collection is made with materials such as brass or silver and other more audacious hybrids such as quartz crystal coated in titanium and car paint.
A new visual alphabet ready to branch out into geometric and technological evolutions and, why not, new functions for jewelry.
