Soul of Glass, Aristocrazy Design Bootcamp

A BIAAF project in collaboration with Aristocrazy and Madrid Design Festival.

Last 14th, 15th and 16th of February, eight students and lecturers belonging to some of the most renowned jewelry and fashion design schools in the world were selected by BIAAF to take part in Aristocrazy’s Design Bootcamp 2019. Within the framework of Madrid Design Festival, participants belonging to the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Tel Aviv’s Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, New York´s Fashion Institute of Technology as well as Bilbao’s Fine Arts Faculty, enjoyed this project aimed to boost co-creation among emerging creative talents.

Conducted by Architecture Studio Mayice, the ’Soul of Glass’ experience aimed to transmit a base for the use of glass, one of the most complex, delicate and magical materials when it comes to creating pieces, sculptures and shapes.

Each participant created a conceptual piece that embodied the soul of the material and represented the value of a jewel thanks to the guidelines received during a masterclass by the renowned Master Glazier Javier Pérez Valero at the Royal Glass Factory of La Granja de San Ildefonso, Spain.
