Founded in 1814, for almost two hundred years A.E.Köchert has been producing costly and prestigious jewellery in consummate workmanship, from classic forms to contemporary design. The former imperial and royal purveyors to the court and inventor of the
“Sisi Star” – which the empress liked to wear in her hair – is now opening its workshop to the German designer Uli Budde. Inspired by his conversation with the trained gem specialist Wolfgang Köchert, Budde opted for the cut diamond as his theme. But not in actual fact, because he will show neither veritable diamonds nor “bling-bling”, but a project freed of all the values associated with this most precious stone. With focus on the facet, the geometric elements of the classic brilliantcut are dissected in themselves and re-assembled into a new form. This results in polyhedral bodies, wondrous crystalline configurations and modelled 3D landscapes.
