Unconventional materials, such as KONZUK’s signature use of concrete and stainless steel, are intended to upend the traditional perceptions of jewelry to elevate it into wearable architecture. In 2014, KONZUK’s innovative Orbis line was awarded an international design award in Como, Italy; and in 2016, Schwinn, Germany, will begin producing its unique line of concrete hardware. Collaborations include Sir Paul Smith’s flagship stores in New York and Los Angeles.
