Siracusa, 1970

The design approach applied to the jewel returns works in which the overlap and the stratification guide the resulting: the sinuous forms lie on marked silhouettes, the materials intersect on the various planes of rotation, the reflections return details not visible from the front, the cuts allow a glimpse of the underlying elements and the colors of the enamels and stones delimit the formal components.

The result, not precisely identifiable with just one of the two genres, has allowed Davide to design exploiting the potential of the third dimension that today, in his artistic compositions, was limited to being a surprising perception.


Davide Bramante (Siracusa, 1970) graduated from the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin and at the end of 1999 he returned to live in Syracuse after thirteen years spent between Turin, Rome, Bologna, Milan and New York.
