Furniture stand for a jeweller
Mireia Segura is a plexiglas jewellery designer.
She needed to show her designs in an International Gifts Fair.
Most of her pieces are very small, with different brilliant colours, which attract your eyes and distract them for a while. But this occurs when you are close to them; from a distance, these pieces loose their individuality and their colour variation.
From the corridors of one of these enormous Fairs, your eyes go quicker than your steps: For each step your look can register at least three observations, from which you decide if you stop or not at that stand.
Mireia wanted to exhibit an abundance of jewels and the difficulty was to give importance to this amount of little objects that needed to be grouped together in a certain way before appearing to the exhausted eyes of a Fair public.
To remember the extra value that all jewels have, being of whatever material, we decided to place them inside a cupboard, protected.
The furniture shows an exterior claiming to indicate what it hides, it will be dressed by a big collar around it. The furniture size is that of a dressing table, an element of furniture that promises a high degree of intimacy and concentration.
The two doors of this piece of furniture, half opened, will provide a private ambience helping you to choose and try the different necklaces that interest you.
These are two dressing tables to turn around offering other possibilities to display earrings or bracelets. For the stand keepers, a drawer allows them to hide their personal bags, bottles of water and command blocks.
