13&9 The Soul Of Design13&9 The Soul Of Design

The Austrian brand 13&9 The Soul Of Design presented the Geometric Collection, consisting of rings and bracelets for women and rings for men. Each one of these pieces is inspired by nature: stone, symbolizing permanence; and the honeycomb, symbolizing modular functionality. The shapes of these elements – the ellipse and the hexagon – form the basis of the collection, balancing soft lines with sharp edges that are both smooth and textured. These jewels are made from the versatile and pliant, Corian®, a material that is typically not used to make fashion accessories and can be formed into endless shapes.
