Titanium, the “material of the future” and its sophisticated, practical
and refined applications: from sportswear to architecture, from
artificial limbs to cosmetics and jewelry, Titanium is a strong, shining,
tough metal. It constitutes a new frontier for designers and can be
used in the production of aircraft, pipes or jewelry. This demonstrates
that even a static sector like jewelry can open up to research, transfers
of knowledge and innovation.

Titanium and its technologies becomea subject of reflection with a view
to design for 15 experts and 15young jewelry designers, in a comparison
of material based on the common thread of experimentation and research.
The designers are invited to interpret an unusual material in this field,
which constitutes and communicates the most advanced innovation in jewelry
technology. And so the new frontier of jewelry meets titanium
technology: designers encounter this new and exciting medium.
