This is the story of a structured, distorted shape, which, as it reflects, undoes itself, gradually moves away from its archetypal origin.
A perfect shape that slowly impedes itself. Becomes dual. The octagon it originally came from becomes irregular. From this formal frame, with bold lines, a mobile and aerial dimension arises. A controlled irregularity brings it to life.
Inspired by the eponymous shape, Octogone reinterprets this classic of formal architecture in a new way. Jewel-Objects that move away from their original shape to create a new one. Dissociated, faceted, dual. A rhythmic duality for a jewel of pure beauty, giving birth to a singular intimacy within an emblematic shape.
At first glance, it is a structured object of geometric precision, presenting a comforting radicality, which then slowly starts to shift, creating a sway, a duality. A chasm between what one expects and what actually occurs … When worn, it is a slender jewel whose angles and summits are offset by the airiness of the whole . Celestial and minimalist. On closer inspection, the light crosses the jewel like a beam. The mat inside captures the light by absorbing it, the shine of the outside reflects it and reveals its brightness.
The shapes have etched precision but make for a delicate wearability. The pieces are finely honed, dedicated to the space they continually create between themselves and the skin.
