A working carousel, handmade in paper, as a display of jewelry.
Porto Jóia challenged us to collaborate with a jeweler and create a piece to expose jewels. We chose Ana Pina's beautiful jewelry and created a carousel based on the “Orbital” collection.
It was immediate that astronomy should be the theme. The jewels were so minimal that we believed the carousel needed to be a delicate and detailed object, so the product could pop.
The center of the carousel is the Sun, and orbiting around it, each small stand represented one of the solar system planets. The base of the object was inspired in an old astrolabe and the top gathered some of the major constellations of the night’s sky.
In the final result the jewels were orbiting around the sun while the carousel turned and turned.
