Hemmerle is a fourth-generation family-run jeweller at the vanguard of contemporary design. Founded in 1893 in Munich, its handcrafted one-of-a-kind works are characterised by innovative material combinations and a dedication to craftsmanship and quality. Each jewel conceived is layered with cultural and historical references and is as original as a work of art. Today, Christian and Yasmin Hemmerle run the business, with the continued support of Stefan and Sylveli Hemmerle. Hemmerle’s jewellery has been exhibited in museum exhibitions around the world and can be found in the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, New York and Die Neue Sammlung, Munich.
Contemporary Jewellery Creations at Design Miami/ Basel 2021/
About 100 contemporary jewellery creations by Hemmerle will be presented at Design Miami/Basel for the first time as an exhibitor. Key to highlight how only about 150 creations are made each year and a single piece can take over 500 hours of work and years can pass waiting to find the perfect component to complete a piece. Dedication to craftsmanship, researching innovative techniques and the bold use of materials, as well as making everything under one roof at the house’s atelier in Munich with its twenty master craftsmen, are all key components that constitute Hemmerle’s philosophy and ideology. Renowned for its distinct aesthetic, signature style including structural pieces with geometric lines, the open-ended Harmony Bangle with its seamless closure has become a distinctive element within the visual language of the house.
