LE CABINET DE CURIOSITES DE THOMAS ERBER NOV 2015
Melanie Georgacopoulos at ‘Le Cabinet de Curiosités de Thomas Erber – Edition Anniversaire 2010 – 2015’. Each year Thomas Erber invites top artists and designers to create a unique piece for ‘Le Cabinet de Curiosités’, this year marks the special anniversairy edition where the show returns for the first time since 2010, to Paris.
For Le Cabinet de Curiosités de Thomas Erber, Melanie Georgacopoulos has chosen to produce just one statement piece, the ‘Corde de Nacre’. This one-off neckpiece features beautiful shimmering white and golden Mother of Pearl tiles backed with silver. Each segment has been cut by hand, sanded, polished and strung with silk thread to ensure a perfect fit, the sections are then interwined to form a loose noose in the shape of a necklace.
