Unexpected jewelry collection by Hariri & Hariri Architects
By Staff

The New York-based sister architecture team has tried their hand at jewelry for Swarovski Atelier to be in stores for the holidays. Their inspiration for the 'Kryptonite' collection was inspired by natural crystalline geometries and the quarry site of their Salzburg Sternbrauerei Project.

"Like all of our work this collection cannot be defined as one thing, it is the amalgamation of many things where beauty, sensuality, functionality, technology and philosophy connect the body and mind," said Gisue Hariri.

Hariri and Hariri's crystal cut evokes the strength and force of their organic nature. Oversized and asymmetrical, Gisue and Mojgan were interested in that added dimension and boldness which comes from its chiseled irregularities. Fabricated in Italy for Atelier Swarovski, the collection includes a statement ring, large pendant, choker, wrist cuff and belt in colors Crystal Golden Shadow, Crystal Silver Shade and Crystal Sahara.

Hariri & Hariri are included in Atelier Swarovski's Autumn/Winter 2010 crystal jewelry and accessories collection with other designers such as Karl Lagerfeld, Marios Schwab, Holly Fulton, Kirt Holmes and Stephen Webster.
