Anthias: Jewels Since 1990

Paperback / softback
In Milan's central railway station district, Monica Castiglioni and Natsuko Toyofuku collaborate on much-coveted, limited edition collections in their jewelry workshop, Anthias. Indifferent to the dictates of fashion, they choose to let their clients come to them-and as a result, over the course of their two decades of collaboration, they have become famed worldwide for playful and affordable pieces that always seem to defy prevailing tastes, but which manage to improve with age. The constraints of their production apparatus and habits allow for a concentrated experimentation with form, color and handmade techniques-no design is entirely resolved at the drawing board stage. This volume is the first to offer a look at their entire oeuvre (which consists almost entirely of unique pieces). Anthias can be found at the MoMA Design Store, Moss and Karkula in New York, the Victorian & Albert Museum Shop in London, DePadova in Milan and Dice & Dice in Japan.
