D’arc.Studio will be at MAD Musem for LOOT 2016
D’Arc. Studio—Associate Architects was founded in Rome by Rosa Topputo and Alessio Tommasetti in 2007. Influenced by both art and science, it serves as a factory that is not restricted to a single discipline, but is open to the influences of architecture, design, fashion, graphics, animation, video and comics. The city of Rome itself, as well as Italian history and art, inspire the designs, which combine aesthetics and functionality. The studio’s many international collaborations are a gateway for bringing the studio closer to its goal of reaching ideal beauty. Inspired by the success of the Cambiami eyewear project, a collection of customizable sunglasses made with 3D-printing technology, they have developed a new 3D-printed jewelry collection with floral elements that are influenced by the baroque aesthetics typical of Lecce in southern Italy. This collection of jewelry represents one way to translate physical sculptures into digital ones.
From April 11-16, 2016, The Museum of Arts and Design will present LOOT: MAD About Jewelry, its annual exhibition and sale featuring designs from more than 40 emerging and acclaimed international jewelry artists. Now in its 16th edition, LOOT has become known as the ultimate pop-up shop for contemporary artist-made jewelry, where collectors and jewelry enthusiasts have the rare opportunity to meet and acquire pieces from some of the most innovative creators in the field.
LOOT is in keeping with the long-standing commitment of the Museum of Arts and Design to present jewelry as an art form. MAD is the only American museum to possess a gallery dedicated to the display of both temporary jewelry exhibits and its own collection of contemporary and modern studio and art jewelry.
Proceeds from LOOT: MAD About Jewelry benefit the Museum’s exhibitions and education programs.
