The “Fourth Dimension” of Stefania Lucchetta

Designer Stefania Lucchetta explains the inspiration behind her jewelry works on view at Musée des Arts Décoratifs, during the "Collect / Connect - Contemporary jewellery" event


Running at the Jewellery Gallery of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs till to January 3rd 2021, the event “Collect/Connect - Contemporary jewellery” is exhibiting Stefania Lucchetta’s experimental creations, which reflect a true contemporary attitude. Lucchetta is, in fact, a pioneer in the use of 3D modeling software and prototyping machines, her way of use these new technologies allowed to produce complex forms impossible to obtain with standard tools. «The project for this exhibition has been a challenge: to add a fourth dimension to this geometry.», she explains. «A fourth dimension to be explored in a more intuitive and less "mathematical" way. The expression of a force, “a kind of generating energy” which implies a search for fluidity in order to produce objects which, even if they are imbued with a hidden geometric complexity, are closer to the shapes and colors that we find in nature. Jewels that create - even if never seen - the suggestion of atavistic shapes, immediately recognizable because buried in our ancestral memory. Organic sculptures on the organic curves of bodies.» The fifteen pieces of jewelry presented on view are true sculptures in miniature form: her earlier geometric and abstract structures evolve, in more recent pieces produced for the exhibition, into organic sculptures closer to shapes found in nature. But why geometry? «From my first experiments, almost twenty years ago, on innovative technologies, new manufacturing processes and new materials, I aimed to achieve a balance through the interconnection between form, structure and material. The most suitable language to find this balance was geometry: the very complex intersections of lines, planes and solids from which were born abstract objects of architectural plasticity which openly demonstrated their purely intellectual origin.»
