After completing her training as a goldsmith, Munich-based designer Saskia Diez decided to study industrial design and later worked for several design studios, including Rosenthal and Konstantin Grcic, before setting up her own studio. A coincidence led her back to jewellery design but her informal, reduced pieces clearly convey her perspective of design. With their clarity and intelligent simplicity, her designs are truly captivating, playing with tradition and modernity, citing the “zeitgeist” without being trendy. In addition to her unique jewellery designs, Saskia Diez is also known for her travel bag “Papier” for which she received the German Design Prize 2010.
The jewellery case JEWEL, presented in 2011, marks e15’s first collaboration with Saskia Diez.
