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.

Twelve years of jewelry production by Chi ha paura…?

‘Chi ha paura…?’, the Netherlands based jewellery production brand with the unpronounceable name and the question mark, is celebrating its twelve-year anniversary. The Italian name means Who is afraid of…?, followed implicitly by contemporary jewellery.

CHP sets out to generate intelligent jewellery designs that bear testimony to clear and new concepts, and which are fit for production in series, advocating innovative production methods and materials.

A 152 page book designed by Joost Grootens Studio, Designers on Jewellery: Twelve years of jewellery production by Chi ha paura…? has been published by Arnoldsche Art Publishers on this occasion. The book features specially commissioned photography by Rien Bazen and an essay, ‘The quest for intelligent design jewellery,’ by Liesbeth den Besten.
The book brings together the comprehensive collection of 74 pieces, including 40 sales collection pieces, 15 limited editions and 19 prototypes spanning the original collection of 1996, and the three subsequently launched themes, Sense of Wonder of 2002, What’s Luxury of 2004 and Rituals of 2007.
The collection ranges from classic designs by Gijs Bakker and Emmy van Leersum to biomorphic designs by Australian product designer Marc Newson, novelties like Ron Arad’s text bracelet, ‘not made by hand, not made in China’, Frank Tjepkema’s award-winning cruciform pendant ‘Bling Bling’, and Marcel Wanders’ golden ‘Nose’, now the well-recognized logo of the Marcel Wanders Studio. In total twelve years of Chi ha paura…? brings together 51 designers coming from 13 different countries, including Ted Noten, BLESS, Tord Boontje, Ineke Hans, Studio JOB and Marti Guixé. With 50 different types of materials, the collection features 25 pieces to be worn around the neck, 19 on a finger, 14 on the wrist, 14 on the chest, three on the ear, five elsewhere on the body (mouth, nose, eyes), and three not on the body.
