Arrangement for exhibition in Amsterdam

Diamond Fever was inspired by both the Topkapi Palace‘s ‘Spoonmaker‘ diamond, which—rumor has it—was once found in the trash, as well as by the newly constructed glass and steel tower called ‘The Diamond of Istanbul.‘

Diamond Fever is an unlimited edition. Each box comes with an identical brilliant cut steel lattice accompanied by a unique arrangement of leftover materials collected from small manufacturers in Istanbul.
