Description

For the “Safeefah x Gold Casting” Design Lab, Irthi Contemporary Crafts Council collaborated with Alia bin Omair, a UAE-based jewellery designer, to produce gold cast weaves. Bidwa’s artisans from the Bidwa Social Development Programme elevated the production of Safeefah weaves into wearable elements by implementing an additional step to the process: casting the weaves in gold.

The nimble fingers of the artisans have combined their knowledge of Emirati Safeefah weaving techniques with Alia’s designs to produce a collection of necklaces, rings, earrings, and wearable perfume bottles.

The artisans wove the palm fronds to execute bin Omair’s vision. A mould was created by imprinting the Safeefah creations in wax and 18k gold was cast to create the unique collection of jewellery.

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
