Design Miami Chat Shows: Ted Noten

The penultimate of our Design Miami Chat Shows filmed in Miami last month features Dutch jewellery designer Ted Noten.

Filmed by Dezeen at Design Miami in front of a live audience, the Noten talks about the five images (including a Russian street sweeper and blobs of chewing gum on a pavement) he selected in response to the Design Miami Chat Shows brief: My Design Life in Five Images.

Here's a biography of Noten:


Ted Noten

Ted was born in Tegelen, The Netherlands in 1956. In his early adult life he explored various jobs, such as bricklaying and nursing, before finding his way to the Academy for Applied Arts in Maastricht in 1983 and the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in 1986.

From there he built an international reputation for jewelry design, and since 2005, has created unique, often controversial designs from his Amsterdam-based studio Atelier Ted Noten.

Ted holds a Senior International Research Fellow position in the School of Jewellery at Birmingham City University in England, and his wry and witty work has been presented in a variety of museums and galleries around the world. Ted will be represented by the Jewellery Gallery Ornamentum at this year’s Design Miami/.
