ELEMENT 79 –  A.E. KOECHERT – 2015

“Element 79 – Aurum” is a collaboration between designer Klemens Schillinger and A.E. Köchert, a Vienna jeweler steeped in tradition. The Project looks at the material of gold from a rational point of view. This perspective is visualized by pieces of jewelry. Its design parameters reflect immanent values, such as fineness and hardness, as well as the volatile gold price of the last fifty years.

This series of precious jewelry spells out a table of elements that define what we perceive as precious. It thus transforms the concept of the hallmark into an aesthetic principle.
