Rosa Topputo and Alessio Tommasetti for .bijouets

D’Arc. Studio—Associate Architects was founded in Rome by Rosa Topputo and Alessio Tommasetti in 2007. Influenced by both art and science, it serves as a factory that is not restricted to a single discipline, but is open to the influences of architecture, design, fashion, graphics, animation, video and comics. The city of Rome itself, as well as Italian history and art, inspire the designs, which combine aesthetics and functionality. The studio’s many international collaborations are a gateway for bringing the studio closer to its goal of reaching ideal beauty. Inspired by the success of the Cambiami eyewear project, a collection of customizable sunglasses made with 3D-printing technology, they have developed a new 3D-printed jewelry collection with floral elements that are influenced by the baroque aesthetics typical of Lecce in southern Italy. This collection of jewelry represents one way to translate physical sculptures into digital ones.
