Shelf Aware

An exhibition of work by staff and students of Central Saint Martins BA Jewellery Design at Munich Jewellery Week

Shelf Aware showcases work by 41 staff and students of the Central Saint Martins BA Jewellery Design course. The students and staff are delighted to be returning to Vitsoe in Munich for the third year running to display their work as equals, in celebration of the course's diverse and lively approach to contemporary jewellery and objects. Vitsoe’s 606 Universal Shelving System once again provides the perfect environment to display this exciting body of work.

The BA Jewellery Design course is proud to promote an understanding of a wide variety of materials, approaches and contexts within the contemporary jewellery field. Innovation, originality and individual identity are encouraged and developed, and we are also keen for students to recognise and investigate the cultural, social and ethical issues relevant to jewellery and its manufacture.

Some of the work in the exhibition has been made in response to curriculum projects in Years 1 and 2 and other pieces are entirely self-motivated.

Caroline Broadhead, Course Leader of BA Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins comments:

"We are so pleased to present Shelf Aware, an exhibition of new work by CSM staff and students at Vitsoe this year. Dieter Rams’ shelves are quietly functional, perfect for showing off the quality and breadth of jewellery that emerges from BA Jewellery Design."

Jennie Moncur, Creative Director at Vitsoe said:

"At Vitsoe we like to engage with organizations who are likeminded, who demand us to think, and challenge that thinking. The BA Jewellery Design course at Central Saint Martins is no exception, with its ability to provoke immense creativity from staff and students. We are delighted to present this fresh body of work, together with the live event, in our Munich shop for a third consecutive year. Yet again it will not fail to stimulate and surprise."
