The collection Urbe_Roma is born from the encounter between the ancient and the modern, between traditional processing techniques and new technologies. Roma tells the charm of the eternal city, symbol of beauty, history and architecture in the world, through jewels with a contemporary and minimalist design and a strong character. The contrast between ancient and new is enhanced by the opposition between the smooth and sinuous shapes of Roman architecture and the geometric and regular cut of buildings and streets of the metropolis.
The Urbe collection, design by Maria Diana for .bijouets, is an evolution of her original collection, City, which started from the graphic processing of the maps of some cities, printed with laser techniques on wooden supports, used then as mold to imprint textures on porcelain. And these textures have been reworked into three-dimensional models and applied to the modular hexagonal elements that compose the Urbe collection.
It is said that a jewel is forever … what city will be the next one to become “eternal”?
