olgafacesrok winter garden
olgafacesrok AW13 presents the Winter Garden Project. Taking part in the official Paris Fashion Week schedule in collaboration with China based designer Masha Ma, the design duo of Olga Košica and Rok Marinšek displayed a talent for jewellery that is at once bold and delicate. Inspired by the poetry of Pablo Neruda (Winter Garden), earrings in the form of organic, realistic flower motifs were frozen in the ice. Elements such as icy roses, snow drops, twigs and leafs were connected to create a flowing earring. Produced using the relatively untapped resource of 3-D printing, the lightweight material (polyamide) means earrings hang effortlessly, mapping natural shadows across the face.
Jewellery was crafted by 3D printing on a Pro60 machine with the technique of selective laser sintering, in collaboration with Ortotip. The material used is polyamide powder. The process ensures the production of functional product with high mechanical and thermal resistance, while maintaining all the beauty of the design.
