Ajoure Centerpiece

The Ajoure centerpiece are inspired by “ajour” - a style of jewelry design similar to filigree, which leaves open spaces in the worked metal. It was mainly used in the making of gold jewelry, such as pendants and brooches in France. The result is reminiscent of the style of lace known as "ajour" - which is what the product is named after.

The Vernacular

We are a Design Collective based in San Francisco. Our vision is to harness unique local insights and crafts from around the world to create a interesting experiences and artifacts. The Studio is engaged in experimental projects at the intersection of culture, objects and design. We render new perspectives on materials, forms and perceptions through our conceptual projects. Our studio projects involve ethnographic studies and visual story telling of the relationships between objects and culture. The Shop collaborates with designers and artisans to develop a lifestyle brand that celebrates craft and manufacturing techniques from around the world. Our shopping experiences are built around relationship, conversation and community of people who share our design values and curiosities.
