Project picks archaic magical conception of the universe that surrounds the value of jewelry and the odd propose -against the usual crowded shop filled with jewelry, a wrapper which exposes the valuable pieces, as unique, exclusive. This creates an mysterious, strange, hollow, weightless, while eastern and Baroque atmosphere.
Originated through a geometry that surrounds and a chest like a jeweler, able to accommodate with the delicacy and mystery that requires valuable pieces. There are some theatrical resonances, treatment of the vault, dark backdrops, lighting and staging that emphasizes scores only.
