the gold edition
With “gold” being our namesake, we only thought it appropriate to do a post dedicated to the color gold. But not in a garish glam fashion (a la the disco queen) but rather a quiet interpretation of gold, one routed in shape, form and intellect and one of sculptural incarnation regardless of the canvas and context.

The gilded brass is calmed by the mix of luscious blue matte satin and velvet. Image at Right: Our goldno.8 signature packaging – a vision of texture and shine when dancing with the light.

Image at Left: These concrete floors were inspired by the Japanese tradition of preserving things as they age, to honor the history of the object by making it beautiful once again. Streams of gold filled in this concrete floor’s cracks to create a true work of art through preservation. Image at Right: Maison Martin Margiela, Spring Summer 2013.
