Biography

For Beatrice Brovia and Nicolas Cheng, two Stockholm-based designers, jewelry need not decorate only the body. In “Conversation Piece,” an ongoing research project whose first “chapter” was shown in 2011, the design duo considers space itself as something to be adorned: doorknobs are sculpted, fine silver sheets get subtly folded and placed on the floor, snarled fibers are strung through walls. For their third chapter, Brovia/Cheng made otherworldly brooches, out of everything from rubber to oxidized silver to Carrara marble.
