Ek Thongprasert – Spring/Summer 2013

The concept behind Ek Thongprasert’s jewellery work is very clear: to transfer traditional and classical jewellery silhouettes into silicone, a material of choice since the beginning of his collaboration with jewellery designer Noon Passama, also co-founder of the brand. This substitution of qualities, though fairly simple to conceive, has a tremendous effect in the pieces as it acts as kind of denying them the weight of history so to speak. Even when the look of the compositions is at first undoubtedly classical, the dyed silicone and the abundant costume crystals – in cascades of synthetic-organic unfoldings – do provide them with an immediate rebellious and contemporary feel, which are for the most part, Ek Thongprasert’s already renowned signature style.

Ek Thongprasert is based in Antwerp, Belgium.
