Extra ID by Anke Weiss


Extra ID jewellery by Dutch designer Anke Weiss imitates the security tags attached to items of clothing in shops to prevent them from being stolen.

The pieces are made from sterling silver and include security alarm parts.

The project is a comment on the ubiquitous presence of surveillance and security systems in the urban environmment: "If you are being watched anyways, you might as well get the full attention!" says Weiss.

Weiss also designed the Bonsai Tree table, Love in the City concept and Packaging Lights featured in our previous stories.
