Just over three months ago, Warren Cheng and Artem K launched a new product-based design company called WXA100. I must say, they have a very unique business model. They are delving deep into one project at a time, and they will release exactly 100 of these products for each run. For their first project, Dimens1on, they designed a very sculptural necklace, which comes with either a horizontal or vertical pendant.
The pendant is made from white resin (reminding us of a Canadian snowstorm) and repurposed walnut, on a rose-gold fill chain. Its minimalist design is very purposeful, “All unnecessary elements have been stripped away, leaving only what is truly needed. By removing the extra unnecessary aspects, you are able to see the true beauty of the design without any distractions.”
Arriving in beautiful wool felt packaging with a type-written certificate of authenticity, I was quick to play with different ways to layer it with other necklaces.
While not all of their projects will be jewelry, they do have three jewelry pieces planned in the next year. The next object they will be releasing is a series of hand-stitched notebooks with unique covers produced with a “marbling” technique. Other projects include a blanket and a bracelet. I’m very intrigued to see what this duo will be creating! If your interest is piqued as well, I encourage you to check out their blog
too. I really enjoy their “weekly photos.”
