Architect Zaha Hadid has chosen 20 personal highlights for showcase.
A 22ct yellow gold ring by up-and-coming designer Jennifer Saker is one of 20 pieces chosen to appear in a specially-curated exhibit at the Goldsmiths’ Fair by renowned architect Zaha Hadid.
Hadid will guest curate a showcase of personal highlights from this year’s Goldsmiths’ Fair, which takes place in London’s Goldsmiths’ Hall from September 22 to October 5 2014.
The collection dubbed Zaha Hadid Selects will feature 20 masterpieces chosen from the jewellery and silver collections of the 170 UK-based designer-makers.
Although the final line-up is being kept under wraps, the Goldsmiths’ Company has revealed that it will include a 22ct yellow gold ring by Jennifer Saker, who will be exhibiting at the Fair for the first time.
Saker places contemporary architecture and engineering at the heart of her jewellery designs, which is what attracted Hadid. She is also one of the first jewellery designers in the UK to use rapid prototyping to scale architectural forms to human proportions.
Head of communications at the Goldsmiths’ Company, David Mills, commented: “As well as being a phenomenal architect, Zaha Hadid is an inspirational figure in the wider world of design and style. We are delighted that Zaha has agreed to curate our first guest selection at Goldsmiths’ Fair, an event which celebrates the very best in contemporary British design and craftsmanship.”
Zaha Hadid Selects will be unveiled on September 22 2014.
