Bjørg's "Nude Alphabet”

Rather than fauna and flora, some contemporary designers have turned their attentions to the human body. Norway’s Bjørg Nordli-Mathisen was inspired by those in two of Matisse’s emblematic paintings, “The Acrobats” and “The Dance”. She imagined nude dancers kneeling, sitting, or opening wide their arms in a cross. The intensity and energy of the movement transforms them into shapes: A, B, C, etc, creating 24 gold-plated silver letter pendants to be mixed at liberty.
