The Geneva School of Design
The Geneva School of Art and Design, HEAD – Genève (Switzerland) and YOKO London are pleased to announce their first collaboration for a pearl focused project entitled “Young Pearls”, under the artistic direction of Melanie Georgacopoulos, jewellerydesigner and Tiffany Bähler, jewellery designer and professor at HEAD.
The workshop around the theme of “Young Pearls” invites the second year students of the Department of Product Design / Jewellery and Accessories to design a collection which revisits a classic with a fresh perspective. The students are required to do market research and prepare a moodboard that inspires them, before designing a collection of three pieces which feature pearls in an innovative way, developing one final prototype as well as colour renderings.
All pearls for the final prototypes will be generously provided by YOKO London and the selected pieces will be showcased at GemGenève.
