The Zigzag Earrings are sterling silver earrings designed by Vancouver based hk + np studio
Designers Hiroko Kobayashi and Neil Prakash have practiced architecture at some of the world’s most respected firms. Since 2009, they have translated their modern aesthetic to the scale of the body, as well as the building site. Each piece of jewelry is a miniature study in architectural balance: considering light, space and form to exacting standards.
The Zigzag Earrings are a part of the Zigzag series, inspired by the Walk Through the Bamboo Forest concept. The bamboo forest speaks in a whisper. Each breeze nudges the trees into a swaying, crisscrossing rhythm. This exploration was later developed through origami, which inspired the undulating pattern of this series. The Zigzag Earrings draw on this inspiration with crisp, folded edges giving these pieces a subtle edge, while the pleated surface constantly engages the light.
