CHP Jewelry Collection - Gijs Bakker Projects

Gijs Bakker (1942) is a renowned Dutch jewellery and industrial designer. In 1996, Bakker co-founded ‘chp…?’ , which will cease to exist after 23 years. With this auction the public will have a chance to obtain a piece from a remarkable collection.

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.

Combining playful forms and experiments with advanced technologies, Ron Arad (1951) has emerged as one of the most influential designers of our time. Born in Tel Aviv, after studying at the Jerusalem Academy of Art he moved to London in 1973 to study architecture. He made his name in the early 1980s as a self-taught designer-maker of sculptural furniture. He now works across both design and architecture.
Consistently inventive and challenging, Ron Arad has studiously avoided categorization by curators and critics throughout his career. He never wanted a profession as such – whether as architect, product or furniture designer – but his reputation in each of these fields is formidable; as the outsider continually questioning established practices and institutions.

Ron Arad was born in Tel Aviv in 1951 and and at the Architectural Association in London (1974-79). In 1989, he and Caroline Thorman founded 'Ron Arad Associates'. He was professor of Design at the Hochschule in Vienna from 1994 to 1997 and Head of Design Products Department at the Royal College of Art from 1997 to 2009.
Ron Arad has exhibited at many major museums and galleries throughout the world and his work is in many public collections including, among others, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Metropolitan Museum of Art, N.Y; Victoria & Albert Museum, London and the Vitra Design Museum, Germany.

Ron Arad designs for many leading companies including among others Kartell, Vitra, Moroso, Fiam, Driade, Alessi, Flos and Swarovski.
Architectural projects include: Maserati Headquarters Showroom in Italy, the Living room and family dining room for Sheikh Saud Al-Thani’s Villa in Qatar, the Selfridges Technology Hall in London, the Tel Aviv Opera Foyer in Israel, the Bauhaus Museum in Tel Aviv and, together with Bruno Asa, the Design Museum Holon.
