Christiane Diehl : rubber jewellery update

September 28, 2007 9 comments

Christiane Diehl, a talented and creative designer of landscapes and jewellery, has developed an array of sumptuous works using the rubber inner tubes used for bicycle wheels and other rubber bands. You may recall a previous post on her work. The results are tactile and extremely appealing and have interested cycling enthusiasts, designers and appreciators of good jewellery and design from all around the world.

Well Christiane’s obsession with the material has continued since her move from Sydney to Hannover, Germanay.


Back in Germany I continued working with recycled materials, especially with inner bike tubes. I never thought this material had so much design substance. I can’t stop to touch it!

Here are some of the more recent deigns that have given the inner tube new ‘spin’.





There are many more designs to her creative reportior beyond the images I have chosen here so feel free to contact her through her website for more information.

Young Blood Markets 2007

August 17, 2007 Leave a comment


Held tonight at the Powerhouse Museum for possibly the third year (correct me if I’m wrong) Young Blood Market is possibly one of the most exciting consumer opportunities of the entire SDO7 event. It’s fun, usually with a DJ or performer (Tina Harrod on one occasion), allows the opportunity to network, meet designers and discover how they have developed their product, exchange ideas and a myriad of other things that I possibly couldn’t even imagine, and it all happens here. Of course designers sell their products directly to the public and may potentially pick up a few retailers in the processes giving them further commercial success.

It’s the place to be seen, and to see (products of the future), meet friends, have a casual drink and a gathering. See you there tonight!
