Eastern Blocks Concrete Jewelry by Gerda Liudvinaviciute

Home > Winners > #110185


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Eastern Blocks

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Concrete Jewelry

INSPIRATION:
The collection was inspired by Eastern European panel blockhouses as an iconic modern community symbol. Shapes of panel buildings and us - people, who live in individuality fiction, because the truth is that only a few centimeters between the walls separate us and our individuality is just fiction in this world.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This design is wearable architecture. Concrete material and brutalist design with the story behind makes these accessories more than wearable - it's an educational, fashionable manifesto about architectural heritage and society.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Wearable jewelry made of concrete. Light, strong, and non - allergic material make jewelry more comfortable and wearable. This technology and design give a chance to wear architecture in real form and material as a piece of jewelry.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project started as an idea 2018 but I finished this collection 2020.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
I chose concrete material - light, non-allergenic, and less fragile to create an ode of a brutalist dystopia. First of all, I designed 3d drawings, made prototypes, and then, started to create molds for concrete details with silicon. When the concrete pieces were finished, I started metalworking with silver and leather materials.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Necklaces approx.17.5 cm x 15.5 cm and other 18x11 thickness 0.5- 1 cm. Earrings 4x2 cm concrete detail and optional 5-9 cm silver wire long. Other earrings 14.5x2 cm.

TAGS:
concrete jewelry, architectural jewelry, eastern european, blockhouses, brutalist jewelry, soviet architecture, brutalist architecture, jewelry artist, jewelry designer,

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I made monitoring of the architecture and society attitude of Eastern European houses. My objective was to find a way, how to talk about post-Soviet society and Eastern European architecture heritage in fashion accessories. The main point is to start a discussion with locals' minds about this unique architecture and spread this wearable message. In this collection, I question people’s attitudes towards Soviet heritage and invite you to take a fresh look at Soviet architecture and society's illusions.

CHALLENGE:
To find a form, which would be understandable, that it's blockhouse jewelry, but minimalist, aesthetic and impressive.
