The Design Concept

 

Shaped by the uniqueness and duplicity of the element it is named after and with the concept carrying the chemical name for carbon in the periodic table. The C6 is based on usage of pure carbon atoms materialised in multiple forms, with the jewelry composed of carbon in two completely different appearances - namely graphite and diamond. Combining science and aesthetics, the C6 design concept brings the diamond back into a beautiful cradle of its natural element. With its stringent and minimalistic design it is authentic, contemporary and timeless. C6 being both modern and classic is an innovative renewal of the traditional diamond ring.

The Element and the Material

 

The element C6 is the basis for our living world. It is found deep inside our planet, in living creatures, in the air that we breathe, and throughout the universe. Without C6 there would be no life. Created by Supernovas stardust C6 was spread into the universe and formed the planets and life on earth. Graphite and diamonds - the two materials constituting the C6 concept - are allotropes of carbon, pure forms of the same element that differ in structure.

Awarded Design & Handcraft

 

Every piece is carefully crafted by hand and is a long process from raw fibre to the final ring. All settings are placed directly in to the carbon fibre without any additional materials, which gives a unique ring that consists only of pure carbon atoms. To bring out the design concept the handcraft is the key role to fulfill the materialisation of the C6 uniqueness. At the Copenhagen Jewellery Fair 2010 Anne Cohen was awarded with the 1st prize for innovative design and use of materials.

The Philosophy

 

The C6 design concept is based on the philosophy of C6 as a symbol of life. Black as coal and clear as light itself. This duplicity and the elements’ duality embody the magic of the elemental cornerstone, C6 of the living world. The design also plays with time, space and being. An evolution from supernova explosions to modern technology. An existential state of mind by the simplicity of C6 and yet complex.
