Maîson Kwan is a jewellery design house operated by its founder Simon Kwan. Simon Kwan was trained as an architect and practiced in Hong Kong since 1967. He was admitted as a member of the Society of Industrial Artists and Designers (UK) in 1970. Dr. Kwan is also an art historian with a Ph. D degree in Fine Arts. He has published over 20 volumes on Chinese art. His profound understand and interest in Chinese art and culture are well demonstrated in his works. His jewellery designs are mostly inspired by Nature and he managed to integrate the elements of line, form, colour and texture into tinny spaces. Contrasting effects between order and disorder, solid and void, curve and straight, hard and soft etc. were all fully utilized in his work to create memorable and sensational pieces of jewellery art.
