Entrevista: Design Interviews

Alguns meses atrás fomos entrevistados por Frank Scott da Design-Interviews.com. Falamos um pouco sobre a criatividade e as técnicas de produção da Linha Vivit, recentemente reconhecida pelo A'Design Award na Itália.

Frank Scott from Design-Interviews.com has interviewed us regarding our creative and productive processes of Vivit Collection, which has recently been aknowledged by A'Design Award in Italy. Have a sneak peek:

 

FS: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?

B&M: Vivit Collection was inspired by organic forms and behaviors found in nature. The main idea was to create memorable pieces able to arouse curiosity of the beholder by means like animals and humans use to seduce - dancing.

FS: How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?
B&M
: Vivit is a latin word meaning a thing or someone that lives. Vivit Collection has a life of its own - through its fluid and swirling lines it dances, hiding and revealing the inner golden surface, with the intention to intrigue and seduce.

FS: Which design tools did you use when you were working on this project?
B&M
: From roughs we developed 3d models to better study the shapes. Then we created physical models in different materials such as paper and wax before heading to the first tests in metal.

FS: What is the most unique aspect of your design?
B&M
: The leaf-shaped earrings surrounds the earlobes so that it's natural movements creates an interesting dance between the black and gold – hiding and revealing the yellow gold underneath. The sinuosity of the forms and the ergonomic attributes of this collection present a fascinating play of light, shadows, glares and reflections.

FS: Who did you collaborate with for this design? Did you work with people with technical / specialized skills?
B&M
: We worked with experienced goldsmiths to get the right curves and shapes, as to develop the movement mechanism of the earrings. The special black plating also required technical skills from a team of engineers and physics specialized in surface engineering.
