Twenty, Thirty, Forty, Fifty…important steps of life, moments to remember.
Our body changes together with our taste and our interests.
XCIX Y is a bracelet that changes with us and it can express our age in many different combinations.
The inspiration comes from the trees and the calculation of their age trough the number of rings in the trunk.
Every single piece is different.
The wooden pieces, made of walnut represent the decades, from 10 to 90.
They are decagons, expressing their self as decades and they have roman numbers as a mark to recognize them.
The red plexiglass, translucent and light, indicates the years in between, from 1 to 9.
The plastic pieces also have incisions, this time they are circles, one for the piece representing the first year of a decade, 2 for the second, 3 for the third et cetera et cetera.
XCIX Y wants to be an object that could be transformed and changed following the taste of its user, creating a special
relationship between the person and the object.
The bracelet is displayed at the Peel Gallery in Texas and it’s been produced in a limited edition of 10 pieces.
