Around 70 Central Saint Martins students were invited to create three pieces each, with the thirteen winning designs being transformed into jewellery by Chow Tai Fook’s craftsmen. Five of the pieces were then displayed at the K11 Atrium in Hong Kong earlier this month.
Chow Tai Fook is the leading jeweller in the mainland of China, Hong Kong and Macau. Beginning in September 2013, the project gave students the opportunity to gain real-life design experience and insights into the Chinese jewellery market.
For their designs, students took inspiration from a variety of sources – from Cambodian bamboo fish containers to the stone columns of Angkor Wat. All thirteen winning jewellery sets will be displayed at Chow Tai Fook’s central branch from 30 May to 1 June.
