‘delux strikes a pose’ reveals the seductive interaction between jewellery and the body. the jewel itself is taken out of the showcase and shown on the body.

dutch industrial designer gijs bakker is lesser known for his jewellery design. together with his late wife emmy van leersum (1930 -1984) he created a range of jewelery adopting industrial materials, made exaggerated collars and emphasized joins in pieces.

for the first time in 25 years the work of the creative couple was displayed in the ‘delux strikes a pose’ exhibition held at oude kerk (a real church) in amsterdam. the show was one of the events of dutch design double.
