This feeling was the impulse to elect Leixões terminal building of Luis Pedro Silva, APDL as inspiration for a new collection. The perception of the “unruled” tiles that covers a large part of the building causes an empathic zig zag that is better felt with your hands, and jewellery is all about touch. This architectonic element also boosts a chromatic vibration between white and golden light, more intense in sunset. Moving light had to be transposed to the jewellery!

Each Leixões ring it’s unique.
