Flowing Arcs Ring by Sun Hyang Ha

Home > Winners > #31136


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Flowing Arcs

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Ring

INSPIRATION:
Most rings are round. I challenged this conventional concept by designing a ring that does not look like a ring and makes people wonder how to wear it. I also wanted it to look beautiful as an objet d'art when it is not being worn.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Consisting only of arcs that flow in a continuous line, this ring can be worn on one finger or two adjacent fingers. Since it is not round like many other rings, people would have fun figuring out two ways of wearing it.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This ring can be customized with different metals and gemstones according to the customer's specifications.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The ring was designed and made in Tokyo in 2010. It was redesigned and modeled in 3D CAD in New York in 2013.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This ring can be 3D printed in wax and cast in metal. It can also be made directly from metal. Stones can be pave set on every side of the square wire, all the way around the ring. Material: platinum, diamond (in main image), 18k yellow gold, tsavorite garnet, 18k black rhodium gold, diamond, 18k white gold, diamond, blue topaz, sapphire, 18k rose gold, sterling silver (from left to right in image #5).

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimensions of the ring: Width 38mm * Depth 19mm * Height 26mm. Thickness of the square wire: 2mm * 2mm.

TAGS:
Jewelry, Ring, Flowing Arcs, Two Finger Ring, Double Finger Ring, Arc, Pave.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
I started the design using only straight lines. However, since the ring was not circular like other rings, it slipped off when it was worn on one finger. Playing with prototypes, I finally discovered that two arcs on opposite sides could securely hold the ring in position. Thus, I replaced the straight lines with arcs.
