The Precious Poetics of Mussels and Muscles

A special fusion of abstract concepts and minimal lines inspire new accessories featuring a particularly poetic aesthetic

What is striking about Mussels and Muscles, a label founded by Lea Köhn in 2019 in Munich, is the delicate tension that the designer creates between art and design. In other words, that special fusion of abstract concepts and minimal lines designed to decorate the body resulting in accessories with a particularly poetic aesthetic. All backed up by an ethical awareness that is revealed through the choice of eco-sustainable production processes. In fact, Mussels and Muscles works exclusively with local producers and suppliers that follow high ethical and quality standards. Each piece is handmade by master goldsmiths from recycled gold and silver. Other raw materials, such as gems and pearls, are purchased from antique shops or salvaged from unused jewelry.
