About CHP Jewelry Collection - Gijs Bakker Projects

Gijs Bakker wanted to show the international design world that a piece of jewellery is more than a decorative fashion accessory. For ‘chp…?’, originality of the concept is central to the design and is supported by a fitting choice of material and technology. 
By showing that jewellery design evolves just like any other design discipline, ‘chp…?’ fills an existing void by making designer jewelry more widely accessible. ‘chp…?’ invited internationally acclaimed designers to create special pieces for the collection. All first prototypes ever made of designs for ‘chp…?’ are in the collection of the Design Museum Den Bosch. After 23 years ‘chp…?’ will cease to exist and with this auction the public will have a chance to obtain a piece from a remarkable collection.

Hannes Wettstein (1958 - 2008) was one of the most innovative and influential designers in Switzerland. His background alone did not follow a standard pattern: born in 1958, Wettstein completed an apprenticeship as a structural engineering draughtsman and then trained himself as a designer and architect. He was fascinated by technological developments as well as art history and architecture and somewhat alchemical and ingenious, his unique way of developing ideas never disappeared. In his own words, he questioned all norms, social, industrial, cultural and ritual, in order to discover something new. This absoluteness was not an attitude but a methodology. His willingness to always rethink everything determined by design, everyday actions, organization of rooms, the purpose of things led him to create surprisingly simple solutions that outlasted time. Technology transfer from design-resistant fields, years of scientific work on an idea or a material and a fine sense of brand quality, Hannes Wettstein shaped a world in which he sought to comprehend the essence of things that surrounded him. Pure, unspectacular, functional design was the stamp of his lights and furniture.

Again and again he returned to sleek forms and classic modern lines. These suited his vision of the world and society in that, even before his time, he knew that only self-evident design can be endurable. Hannes Wettstein designed elegant and perfect objects for daily use that maintained their identity and remained timeless even in the changing flow of fashion. Also in room design he created archetypes: complete and sensitive solutions for specific locations interior fittings or set designs. The comprehensive way in which he helped design the world lives on today in the company he founded in 1991, Studio Hannes Wettstein.
