COSMOS & STARDUST HISTORY
Arje Griegst used to note how “the stones talk to me”, something that can be felt in the almost primordial divinity of the Cosmos and Stardust series. Stones and gold twinkle like stars in the firmament, born from Griegst’s fascination with the groundbreaking Hubble telescope images from the 1990s and the ongoing lure of a universe in constant evolution.
THE GALAXI CHANDELIER.
In the Designmuseum Denmark in Copenhagen, the large chandelier Galaxi illuminates a room. As one moves around the chandelier, the experience of it changes. Arje wished to convey the same feeling you can get when marvelling at faraway galaxies that appear in the firmament on a very dark night.

COSMOS 3 DIAMONDS, 18K GOLD & DOUBLE STARDUST, 18K GOLD.
The stones brood in the light, just as they do in nature. Nothing is permanent, all is fluid.
