BUZAO’s Insight Jewellery Collection: Beauty in nature and simplicity
BUZAO is the new brand from progressive design studio Bentu, which is known for its experimental approach to materials, design and sustainability. Its Insight Jewellery Collection has a modern and minimal aesthetic that combines polished and textured materials to highlight the beauty found in nature and simplicity.
Insight Jewellery Collection is characterised by its delicate balance of lava stone and brass geometric elements, and plays with point, line and volume. The collection includes necklaces, earrings and bracelets that are refined and graphic.
Lava stone is formed through the cooling and solidification of magma, which creates large pores in the stone along with randomly embedded minerals and crystals. This natural material is ink black with an organic, textural finish, and BUZAO highlights its imperfections and irregularities by coupling it with polished brass elements.
It is unique to be utilising natural stone in such a delicate way. The geometric simplicity magnifies the exquisite craft and natural beauty of the materials. Every detail has been carefully considered; even the packaging, which has a series of stacked planes held together by brass screws to showcase the specific composition of elements.
The collection includes four necklaces that have variations of lava stone and gold-filled brass spheres or bar pendants, either alone or paired together. They are linked with a brass chain or black wax cord and a brass pendant and loop as a clasp.
Two hoop earrings have a lava stone sphere, one with a brass sphere and the other with a brass bar pendant. Each are looped with 18k gold-filled brass wire.
Insight Bracelet 1 adopts the traditional form of the Buddhist Mala bracelet with a series of lave stone spheres, punctuates with one brass sphere. Conceptually, each lava stone bead is intended to inspire self-reflection and rebalance.
Insight Bracelet 2 is a pared-back version with a single lava stone sphere and brass bar pendant on 18k gold-filled brass chain.
