Let’s start with a brief historic excursion: architect Eileen Gray (1878-1976) was renowned in her day for both her furniture and her designs for the stunningly white villa E.1027 on the Cote d’Azur. Moreover, she was rather skilled in Japanese lacquer work, and the screens and panels she crafted continue to be highly desirous pieces of design.
Fast forward. Inspired by their fascination with this Irish modernist, the up-and-coming Danish label Kyoto Tango designed a colour-blocked bracelet in 2016. It is made from little pieces of lacquered acrylic, further adorned with several precious metals (beads are gilded with pure copper, sterling silver and 24 karat gold, exclusively done by hand). Kyoto Tango is a one size bracelet, artistically styled and hand-assembled in Denmark. In a word, a lovely piece of unique Copenhagen design.
