‘Melo’, finalist of the Enjoia’t Awards
The work of Product Design student Olivia Wärme has been shortlisted among the 13 finalists of the 2021 Enjoia’t Awards, in the Student category. ‘Melo’ was one of the results of the New Crafts_Digital Revolution project; a collaborative initiative between IED Barcelona and the Catalan Commerce, Crafts and Fashion Consortium (CCAM), which combined crafts and technology.
The student presented two products in one: a piece of jewellery that can be converted into wireless earphones. Taking crafts as a starting point, the work is composed of a range of porcelain pieces alongside other pieces manufactured through 3D printing, assembled together. The result is a perfect fusion of art, design and technology. Wärme developed this product in collaboration with the master craftswoman Trinidad Contreras.
Organised by the FAD Association of Artists and Artisans (A-FAD), the Enjoia’t Awards, which this year celebrate their 26th edition, recognise the most remarkable contemporary jewellery pieces, and are held within the framework of Barcelona Jewellery Week. The project ‘Melo’, along with the work of the other finalists, is on display from 22 September to 24 October in the Disseny Hub Barcelona building.
