Mies Nobis is a conceptual jewellery label drawing on art,
sculpture & fashion as inspiration. Australian born,
Berlin based designer Millicent Nobis studied fashion design
in Sydney, Australia before moving to Berlin where her
label Mies Nobis was founded in 2012.
Starting with inspiration taken from the shapes and forms of
tribal jewellery; bone, horns and teeth, and moving into
study of human form Romanesque muscles cut in marble and
De Vincis anatomical studies. Each collection reflects a
fascination with the human form and its adornment as well
as an experimentation with varying materials.
"Reworking shapes and imagery through a process of
illustration and sculpture i aspire to reflect and refine these
structures into modernised reincarnations, hand crafted in
precious metals as wearable art. Being the daughter of an
architect, the Less is More philosophy of modernist
Mies van der Rohe is ever at the forefront of my mind in
terms of application."
