In an increasingly user friendly world with more and more smart objects surrounding us comes a collection of jewellery that is not accommodating in making our lives more efficient or our tastes more restrained. Ornament is not a crime, it is a delight! It doesn’t make things obsolete or nonmodern but rather alive and dashing.
Hence the name of this somewhat showy collection
Taking its cue from architecture, the collection was inspired by the elaborated late Gothic style from 15th century called flamboyant. Because of its over-the-top dramatic and lavish decorative features like the flame-shaped curves the critics for a long time didn’t give it the recognition it deserved. In the contemporary climate where even jewellery – the most exuberant piece of human accessories – has been submitted to modesty, the Flamboyant by OfR is a daring preposition to live more extravagantly, to stand out, to take pleasure in workmanship.
