London Design Festival 2017: Kaleidoscope Urban: Rome

Kaleidoscope Urban: Rome

Inspired by old & new architectural influences in the city landscape, Alexandra Tsoto has used her hometown of Rome as the inspiration behind her work for Kaleidoscope Urban.



Pendant, sterling silver

By Alexandra Tsoto

The pendant, part of a broader collection, is a celebration of my upbringing in Rome, the ‘Eternal City’, where a simple stroll in town inevitably transforms in a continuum where past and present interlock.

Mine is an attempt of filling in the blanks, to re-design what time eroded away and use the eternal canons of beauty to create a sense of timelessness with a contemporary twist: ‘Metamorfosi’ is the name of my collection, a personal and aesthetic journey.
