Shikaku Pt950/K18 Ring

What is universal beauty?

"I think everyone is beautiful to see, what is the beauty they feel?"

It's something that we 've been designing a lot and we 've been thinking about for a long time.

In touch with the world of origami and the Bauhaus-like design, isn't the "face" or "line" beauty that can be explained mathematically meets that condition?...

I came to think that.

Digital and hand work and

The power of digital was a must in the pursuit of mathematically explainable beauty.

In this ring, a cube (cube-shaped) shape surrounded by a square is connected around a certain angle.

Using three-dimensional modeling software called CAD, the designer himself draws the prototype.

On the other hand, digital work alone does not make a ring that a person wears pleasantly for a long time.

What determines the work of this ring depends on the work of the people how to finish the final finish with good sensitivity.

Enjoy the texture of metal

The texture on the side of the ring has a line in the form of a synchrotron when viewed closely.

This is a trace of the data that comes out when it is output by a 3D printer for production with CAD data.

In general, this pattern is erased and polished.

However, we felt like a message from the digital, and the look attracted me very much.

Data traces on the sides + pale frosted around the top surface

Of course, a sense of quality as jewelry does not come out as it is.

There, a craftsman, Maruyama, has been suggesting trial-and-error, pale matting.

And the top side also decided to go and get a different frosting.

The texture of the metal, the expression of the metal, is a unique sensibility and technique that has been passed on to the Japanese sword-swordsmiths and others before the Meiji era.

For each collection, MENTOSEN's collection expresses its own unique metal texture.

It is an expression of a new metal texture that designers and craftsmen create with each other.

 

Separate parts of gold

Only five frames of square cubes are in K18.

"If you put money in here... it's cool... but it's hard..."

It seemed a very difficult task to make platinum (or silver) and gold pieces separately.

That is

(1) The output of the 3D printer can be accurately shaped
(2) There is no distortion at the stage of casting (casting), and the pattern on the side does not disappear
(3) Finally, the craftsman must braze and finish neatly

That is because the condition must be properly prepared.

"Let's do it!"

It is Maruyama, a craftsman, who told me.

He told me that the last person to suffer was myself, but that I would dare to do it.

And it is this Shikaku [Kakiku] ring that has come true.

 

Even the inside cube

The usual ring is even on the inside.

However, this ring left the face and line of "shikaku" on the inside as well.

I wanted to express the interesting things that are sculptural.

Of course, the most important thing is that it is comfortable to wear in everyday life.

On the inside, the corners are smoothed, one by one, while leaving each side.

Even though it has a cube shape, it doesn't bother me at all when I wear it.

Thus became a strange and interesting ring.

Reflection of light inside the ring

By leaving a face on the inside of the ring, when you look inside the ring, the light will be shimmered and reflected, and when you turn it, the reflection will move.

It will require advanced and painstakingly manual work to have a beautiful mirrored finish that makes it easy to wear, while leaving a bit of an inner edge.

 

Advanced technology, painstakingly work, sensibility

The production and finishing of this Shikaku [Shikaku] ring was handled by Ayumi Maruyama.

From the point of view of production efficiency, this ring is a very inefficient piece of jewelry. While suffering from the difficult production, Maruyama seemed to feel the fun of taking on new things.
In the field of jewellery craftsmen, which is dominated by men in Japan, she continues to work with a solid technique and a new sensibility.

It will open up a new world from now on.
