“Focusing on the essentials: dots, straight lines circles and squares, creates shapes that transcend fad and fashion and will go together with anything. With the sound of silence they have been drowning out trends since time immemorial.” – Gunter Wermekes

On September 6, Luminaire proudly welcomed German-born jewelry designer Gunter Wermekes to the Chicago showroom. His lecture provided insight his timeless work, while the proceeding reception celebrated a stunning exhibition of his stainless steel jewelry.

Fascinated by the purity of steel, Gunter Wermekes manipulates it with a technical complexity that belies the simplicity of his final work. He often uses diamonds to set sparkle in the steel and to offset or soften the geometry of some pieces. Guests were amazed by the brilliance of his work, noting that wearing his jewelry enlivens one’s persona – timelessly, elegantly, and with a silent charisma unique to his designs.
