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.

Emmy Van Leersum was born in Hilversum, The Netherlands. She met fellow student, Gijs Bakker, while studying jewellery design in Stockholm. The two became creative partners for over twenty years. Together, they did pioneering work in jewellery design from the 1960s until Van Leersum's untimely death in 1984. She was a hugely influential designer, both in her native country and throughout the world. A retrospective at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam in 1980 reaffirmed her stature as a leader in minimalist jewellery design.
Van Leersum was trained at the Gerrit Rieveld Academy between 1958-62; later in 1962 she attended Konstfackskolan, in Stockholm, Sweden. Her first solo exhibition was in 1993, and has been shown most recently in 2014.
In describing her work Van Leersum said, "I'm not sure that my work really has that much to do with jewellery. It's more to do with people, with shapes; getting away from simply buying gold. That tradition has never appealed to me. I think you should have a reason for wearing something."
