Contemporary artist Magnus Gjoen has designed a series of sculptures in collaboration with Baldi Home Jewels. Made from 24ct gold plated bronze and semi-precious stones such as malachite, rock crystal, aquamarine, and Ruby Zoisite, they will be showcased and now available to buy at Harrods in London.
First presented at Salone del Mobile in Milan, the sculptures take the form of a grenade, Uzi, and scarab; and in Magnus’ iconic style, he transforms the shape of something considered so destructive, into an object of beauty and luxury.
Playing with the juxtaposition of nature and the destructive man-made, the sculptures incorporate both bronze trees caressing and swallowing the crystal Uzi’s as well as snakes and butterflies in suspended animation wrapped around grenades.
The artist is known for his contemporary take on traditional masterpieces, often fusing the old with the new, with a deep respect for the Italian painters, Renaissance style and craft.
Baldi Home Jewels have similarly dedicated itself to the creation of art and beauty since 1867, creating unique and timeless pieces that embody the Italian style and centuries-old Florentine craftsmanship.
Their collections are made up of exquisite custom-made pieces that are considered nothing less than jewels for the home. Baldi represents a classic aesthetic and a contemporary spirit
– a perfect fit for Magnus’ unique style.
