Based on our first collection, we launched our new styles of jewellery, Spring 2016, a bit more daring, but still celebrating simple.In our first line of jewellery, we sought to break with the usual notion of how jewellery should look like. We have chosen a material that is raw and industrial as a starting point, but through processing becomes smooth and exclusive. The style is Nordic, raw and minimalist. We have worked with simple geometric shapes and the cube has been the heart of our shape.
Maja Thorning Kristensen holds a masters degree in architecture from Aarhus School of Architecture, 2013 and Niels Astrup holds a masters in Digital Design from Aarhus University, 2012. We started Thorning Astrup / aarhus in 2014. Our shared pool of genes create a love to different materials and the challenge to design and combine these in minimalist, unexpected compositions.Our mantra is always to design using only one defining detail in a specific product with a constructivist, modernist approach.
