DNA is the life code, representing every unique aspect of mankind and the living world. This pattern enables everyone to become the people they are. Dutch DNA enables people to visualize their uniqueness, to express this life essence, in a variety of timeless forms, from jewelry to furniture.
The first collection was made from Giulia’s life pattern. Giulia is a Dutch contemporary dance performer and model. This dance mode sits at the pinnacle of human achievement, a graceful form showcasing human endeavor: a fusion of will, passion, and pure physical ability. To capture and express Giulia’s life, Dutch DNA sampled her life code and through the language of design translates Giulia’s distinguishing genetic characteristics into visual forms.
In the collection are designs based on abstract forms, where each genetic map itself if the defining source of inspiration, or are combined with symbolic forms. The symbolic pieces are more constrained and the design incorporates the genetic characteristics into patterns that are used to modify existing forms, such as the Shifting Hearts. Both types of pieces create beautifully expressive designs; the preference of choice is purely a personal decision.
Dutch DNA starts the creative process with a sample of a person’s life-code using a DNA profiling test and through the language of design plots the distinguishing genetic characteristics on a visual design map. Based on a unique design process, these beautiful and elegant forms capture the eloquent expression of life. This design is then modeled into the required item before being handcrafted in the Netherlands and shipped to its destination.
To commission an expression of life, review the collection and then contact Dutch DNA to arrange the first step in the creation process, a DNA profiling.
