Shelf life: Central Saint Martins at Vitsœ Munich

The shelf life of a product is brought into question when the time comes to throw it away. But here at Vitsœ, we think it should be considered at an earlier stage: inception. As the designer of our furniture Dieter Rams stated in his ten principles, good design should be long-lasting.

Together with esteemed art school Central Saint Martins, we consider ‘shelf life’ in an exhibition of work at Vitsœ Munich by 33 staff and students of the Jewellery Design degree course to coincide with Munich Jewellery Week and Munich Creative Business Week. It’s a great time to be in Bavaria’s capital city.

Central Saint Martins encourages students to have an open mind to what jewellery can be, and to explore and express different responses to the world in their work. You will find energising and brave pieces on shelves, in drawers, hanging from rails and over the back of our chairs. The shop will be shimmering – don’t miss it.
