La Molla Kai pendant by Tiziana Redavid.
- Italian architect, Tiziana Redavid, got inspiration for her range of stainless steel jewellery when she visited a friend who manufactured industrial springs.
- Taking samples, she viewed them with her fresh imagination, and was struck by the similarity with African ornamentation.
- She uses African design for her inspiration. Molla is Italian for spring and she has taken this as her trade mark.
Tiziana Redavid was born in Turin where she became an architect in 1995 studying with Jean Nouvel. This is one crucial step for her future projects. In 1994 she works as Elio Luzi’s assistant at the Politecnico in Turin. Curious, sensitive and enthusiastic, Tiziana is conquered by the work of three major Italian artists: Gilberto Zorio, Giuseppe Spagnolo and Marco Gastini. She moves to Paris permanently in 1996 and creates the brand la mollla used for her first collection of stainless steel jewellery made with coils produced in industrial processes.
