You will find something more in woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters.

Creativity Oggetti presents Origo’s exclusive preview, Daniela Boni’s sculptural jewellery collection.
On the 9th of February only the gallery Creativity Oggetti will transform into a bush: from the shadow, as glittering dew drops, the crystals and stones of Daniela Boni’s jewels will come alive.
Daniela Boni started her working experience as graphic advertising designer, scenographer and dj.
Setting up a advertising sets allowed her to experiment different materials to be adapted in creating spaces and furnitures, a competence she later
adapted to design homes, shops, clubs and restaurants.
She then debuted producing furniture design using new techniques on different materials, with a visceral love for Iron.
Her style is widely influenced and inspired: elegant, essential, minimal but at the same time open to fashion’s, art’s and music’s suggestions noticed
in her inexhaustible project’s production.
Her Works are like marks evoking erotic messages, the Totem, The Arc, with a masculine character , or the Circle and the Egg representing the femininity, the ciclic attitude of Life.
A genuine passion for Nature and jewellery pushed Daniela Boni to experiment creating objects featuring a rude, wild and rebellious soul.
Her first collection is named ORIGO: as the Original Start of Life, the Life sparkle, the Beginning of the Universe, the Source.
Through an incessant search and a fascination about the substance and its free variables Daniela Boni instils , using her hands, lots of imagery shapes: In this representation leather turns into the trees’s cortex, the gems into buds , sprouts and shoots, tangled roots, to adorn, praising powerful Mother Earth, glorifying the opposite principles of beauty and hardness.
Every jewel is an exclusive tale of a complex and articulated world, it’s hand-crafted and is a unique and unrepeatable object gifted with strength and energy.
The exceptional pleasing to the touch of this sculptural adornments, connected to a desire to reproduce authentic natural surfaces, has been framed in the wonderful photographic narration by Marcello Bonfanti, winner of many rewards, last but not least Sony’s World Photography 2016 Portrait Award, whose photographic technique comes from a deep study of Art History: the Renaissance paintings composition manner and the Barocco’s lightings, quite detach the figure from the context, ennobling while underlining singularity.
On the opening night of the exhibition a “thematic” light buffet will be offered.
Creativity Oggetti , located at the ground floor of the noble Palazzo Lanza building, is focusing, since 15 years, on artists and designers dedicating themselves to research hand craft excellence and to define a personal artistic character. Study and research in applied Arts are the salient points of the selection and during these years of collaboration with so many Artists and Designers a vaste production of thematic exhibition has been shown and this allowed to create new unique Operas and intere Collections as well.

“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”
A genuine passion for jewelry is what led Daniela Boni to experiment and then create objects, which feature a rude, wild and rebellious soul.
Daniela lives between London and Turin , focusing on a continuous search for fascinating shapes and alluring inspirations.
Her collection ORIGO arise from fascination for natural world, for mineral stone energy , and woods, a special focus on woods, branches, roots, seeds sprouts and gems.
Mineral are invested of important energy; they are the link between human dimension and nature.
Jewels creations are the intermediary between earthly reality and enchanted world, made of vibrating energy.
The extreme high tactility of these sculptural adornments is connected to a desire to represent natural surfaces.
Every jewel is an exclusive tale of a complex and articulated world. Each jewel is hand-crafted and is a unique and unrepeatable object gifted with strength and energy.
ORIGO the basic principle for which something originates, the beginning of life, the start of the Universe, the Source.
Origin is the leitmotif of the whole Collection, inspired from Mother Nature’s most intense and essential form.
In this representation trees’s cortex turns into leather, the gems into buds , sprouts and shoots, tangled roots,to adorn, praising powerful Mother Earth.
In the beginning it was Metal, shaped in basic cellular forms such as the Circle, the Egg, representing life and its cycles.
Moving backwards through Material and thus reaching the principle of it, Metal gets back to Mineral, to Stardust same ingredient Man is made of.
