Yoko Takirai & Pietro Pellitteri

Yoko Takirai & Pietro Pellitteri

Yoko Takirai & Pietro PellitteriAfter graduating from the West Virginia University in the USA, in 1995 Yoko Takirai moved to Florence to study at the jewellery school "Le Arti Orafe", where she obtained a diploma in goldsmith's art, jewellery design, stone setting and engraving. This was followed by a diploma in jewellery design from the Istituto d'Arte di Firenze. Between 1998 and 2000 Yoko taught goldsmith's art at the "Alchimia" school, where she became assistant to Giampaolo Babetto. In 2002, together with Pietro Pellitteri, Yoko founded Takirai Design.

The creative impulse of Yoko Takirai and Pietro Pellitteri’s work is inscribed inside a primordial space in which to act, experimenting with digressions which decline in small mobile sculptures, oscillating between solids and voids, the visible and invisible.

Necklaces, rings and earrings in both three-dimensional and linear shapes, express an unexpected movement and emotion until they are worn. Sometimes enigmatic in their forms, their jewels are revealed in the moment of encounter with the body, revealing an extremely feminine lightness, elegance and sinuosity. And this despite the geometric lines used in some collections. Their research succeeds in arriving at pure forms and harmonizing elegance and comfort.
