Naomi Mcintosh Jewellery at Canary Wharf
NAOMI Mcintosh Jewellery has been selected to exhibit in the Canary Wharf window galleries from May 1 to May 27, 2011.
The window, located in Canada Place on Jubilee Walk, will show the latest collection from the West London based designer, who graduated from the world renowned Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in 2010 and has already shown her work in both the London fashion and design weeks.
Her background in architecture has contributed to the unique nature of her work. This collection is called Wearable Drawings and the pieces are made by hand in London from beautiful walnut wood, polished clear acrylic and gold vermeil. These materials allow the intricate nature of the work to be visible.
Inspiration for the pieces comes from a fascination with rock formations as well as the contours of the human body. Construction, architectural methodologies and drawing conventions have also contributed to this unusual way of working.
Designer Naomi Mcintosh says, ‘I think of the body as a landscape and use cross sections to suggest spaces on the surface of the skin. When worn these fluid works act in synchronicity with the body.’
Customers are able to order pieces directly from the designer as well as galleries across London.
