Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s New York high-rise icon from 1958 was the inspiration for the jewelry series in the international style. The distinctive emphasis on the horizontal and vertical is an expression of constructive logic and of spatial and individual freedom. There is not a single line too much – no ornamentation that distracts from the artifact and its wearer. The essential, if not the essence, is in the foreground.
