These beautiful pieces by Sivan Royz, a student studying textiles at the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Tel Aviv, take their shape and inspiration from the world of nature when in bloom. Building upon the geometries of nature, she relies on silk as the base fabric which is layered continuously to shape each piece. Whether it is a bracelet, necklace or a purse, each piece reacts gracefully to movement just like a living organism.
The structure of the pieces is created through an extensive layering of laser cut silk pieces and a string which keeps them attached. Each piece is evenly colored with a slightly darker shade created by the laser cut reacting and slightly burning the silk. The simplicity and extensive layering creates a subtle and natural texture reminiscent of multi cellular forms. From her accessories, the purse really captivates our attention as it opens to reveal an iPhone and lipstick. Sivan Royz mentions that the purse really holds everything you could possibly need on the red carpet and although we think you might well need one or two more things (keys and valet ticket), we believe the pieces are well conceived and elegant and can accompany any special event. Her collection consists of true conversation pieces that will evolve with more experimentation. We hope to see more from Sivan Royz and these magnificent pieces that blur the lines between art and design.
