The Fine Art Society presents their showcase of twentieth-century Nordic design. With a focus on Danish silversmith Georg Jensen (1866-1935), the exhibition will include over 130 pieces by a selection of Nordic designers and makers. While Nordic Design might appear like a diversion away from what The Fine Art Society is known for, it is something they have been dealing in for nearly one hundred years. During their 141 year history, they have held over three thousand exhibitions at their gallery space at 148 New Bond Street, London, including two of Jensen’s own work: In 1921 and again in 1923, The Fine Art Society held two selling shows sourced directly from Jensen himself. Both shows proved extremely popular in post-war Britain, with the majority of the silver being sold. Having been approached by a client with an impressive collection of Jensen jewellery last year, almost one hundred years on the…

Dutch designer and technologist Rein van der Mast is disrupting how fountain pens are made. Instead of relying on proven technology, in 2013 he started 3D printing titanium fountain pens and nibs which are now available in both 18K solid yellow and white gold. Spica Virginis, is his latest design, resembling an ear of grain and named after the brightest star in the constellation Virgo, where in ancient drawings the virgin holds a bundle of grain ears. In 18K yellow gold the color perfectly matches the color of grain. The pen is also available in 18K solid white gold.  “This type of white gold is developed for 3D printing, selective laser melting in particular. It is very white, and more importantly, it is very hard, eliminating the need for a rhodium coating.” He emphasizes that this is particularly useful for nibs. Van der Mast is the only one in the…

Peacock Collection by Harakh What ultimately makes these precious jewels truly invaluable are the emotions and memories engraved within it.  This is the same spirit in which the Peacock Collection has been conceptualised and created by Harakh.

The iridescent plumage of the peacock and its graceful gait has been, and continues to be a source of inspiration for innumerable poets, designers and…

EHUD LANIADO Ehud Laniado, seller of two of the four most expensive diamonds sold in the history of Sotheby’s, speaks to EAT LOVE SAVOR What drew you to the diamond industry and continues to fuel your passion? My passion for diamonds is multifaceted. Decades ago, I discovered my fascination for identifying the miniscule details which determine what a rough diamond can sell for once in its polished form.

I built my way up in the industry, starting my career in the African bush buying diamonds on behalf of an Israeli company. I moved my family out to the Central African Republic in my early 20s for the job and I later moved to Antwerp where I lived for over 20 years. Today, I’m equally as interested in nurturing…
