Eve bracelet by Claesson Koivisto Rune

Stockholm Design Week: Swedish designers Claesson Koivisto Rune have designed a range of bracelets made of sliced extruded aluminium for jewellery brand Collection Pascale.

Called Eve and launched during Stockholm Design Week last month, the bracelets are made by twisting aluminium as it leaves the die and slicing the extrusion irregularly.

The technique allows unique objects to be created from a manufacturing process normally used to make identical extruded products such as window frames.

The pieces are exhibited at Gallery Pascale (below) in Stockholm until 20 March.

Here's some information from Claesson Koivisto Rune:

Eve

Aluminium is a fantastic material. Strong. Lightweight. Beautiful. It is often employed in technical constructions, industrially formed and manufactured, but seldom seen in a context where aluminium’s beauty becomes apparent.

A typical application for aluminium is extruded profiles. Leading the world in extruded aluminium is the Swedish company Sapa Profiler. Usual products manufactured using the technique are, for example, window frames or radiator fins in electrical equipment. Very technical and very industrial. For Collection Pascale we have created a unique piece of jewellery. A bracelet that we have chosen to call Eve.

The bracelet Eve is formed of extruded aluminium. By rotating the raw extrusion and at the same time cutting it at different angles, a large number of bracelets with varying dimensions are made. In addition, we have chosen several variations for the surface treatment (anodising) to give the bracelets different characters. Despite the fact that the manufacturing process is entirely industrial and the raw material is formed via a single tool the result is a jewellery series where each piece differs from the next – each bracelet is unique.

For manufacturing reasons the bracelet is only available in one size. This means that the vast majority of men will not be able to wear it. The bracelet is specifically for women. This is why we gave the bracelet a feminine name – Eve.

Aluminium is durable. However, should the bracelet eventually wear out, or perhaps you get tired of it, it is of course completely recyclable.

    Well, for a bracelet it promises to be soo “comfortable”, not to mention that those wearing it may hurt themselves or others.

    Design = 8/10
    practicality = 1/10
    safety = 2/10

    If you’re trying to find trouble, you will notice that you can probably hurt yourself with anything that’s out there in the world. Besides, diamonds will cut anything else badly, but apparently they still are used in jewelry. So there goes the safety criteria.

    As for praticality, well, let’s remind ourselves that it is a BRACELET. how pratical can you expect that to be ? It’s not a keychain or an iphone.

    If you want to be objective, that is how you should put it in perspective and sum it up.

    I think it is a nice looking object but that is subjective.

  • Chris R

    I’m just curious on the price of the piece. I like the fact that its jewelry that’s not gold, silver, or platinum its something unique and new. I also work for Sapa and I know the hard work and time it takes to make items like this. Thank you.
