Experimentation informs both the jewellery and interior designs of Dearne Herrenberg
February 6th, 2008
The sculptural form of Herrenberg’s unique jewellery under the brand – Mainichi, are devoid of precious jewels and precious price tags.
Engendering new life to plastics, recycled leather, hemp and linen thread, timbers, polypropylene sheet and bamboo – gives the designer a creative outlet for the realisation of concept to fruition without the long lead times that interior projects can have.
“I enjoy finding materials that are unusual and utilising these in unexpected ways. The process of an idea, its refinement through hands on creation and the end result is very satisfying,” Herrenberg says.
Early jewellery works are characterised by simple assembly, knots, tying techniques and minimal materials and earned the national accolade, “Best Jewellery and Fashion Product Range” at The Gift Awards 2007.
Mainichi’s most recent work now on show at Unleashed 2008: Objects of Desire, the latest exhibition at Artisan: idea skill product in Brisbane, Australia. On show until March 1st 2008, the the exhibition embraces experimentation with elaborate pieces, stitching, embellishment and layering.
On the rise, Dearne Herrenberg Interiors has been featured in a book titled ’Open Doors’, sponsored by RAIA, which documents 26 Australian next generation leading architects, interior designers and furniture designers.
“I like to play with textures, surfaces and tones in my interiors work, adding depth to spaces, particularly the residential spaces,” she says.
