It doesn’t sound like the most obvious of partnerships but the H.Stern collaboration with Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer really works. As one of the most influential names in international modern architecture, he has created many iconic buildings across the world from Brazil to New York. His passion for curves is evident in his designs and their beauty and grace really lend themselves well to the pieces in the collection. The collection was based on Niemeyer’s sketches with several pieces being inspired by the female form. The collection is composed of six different lines and named after some of his famous works and projects.
“It’s not the right angle that attracts me,
nor is the straight line, hard, inflexible,
created by man.
What attracts me is the free and sensual curve,
the curve I find in my country’s mountains,
in the sinuous course of its rivers,
in the ocean waves, in a woman’s body.
The whole universe is made of curves,
the curved universe of Einstein.”
