from Maarten De Ceulaer @ Victor Hunt-Designart Dealer
The focus of the design was to create an award symbolic of New York City Street Skating, as well as to establish a clear hierarchy between the three awards to be given, Grommet, Amateur, and Professional. The design process started with abstract planar and volumetric three dimensional sketches, and eventually went in a more literal direction.
The three cement and white brass awards celebrate the street skating culture and the materials that are a crucial part of it. The bottles of water and juice reference the fuel and hydration for the athletes, that can usually be found empty on the city streets at the end of a session.

Chrisine Santanasto writes:
Through rolling, abstractions are created on various surfaces through movements, memories and shapes.
The idea of this collection is to communicate the relationship the body has with static objects when they are being used as a catalyst for movement. The visual contrast between the weightless body of the skater and the stagnant materials surrounding them is translated into wearable objects that represent the kinetic qualities of street skating.
This body of work is a result of a series of abstract formal studies into the visual relationship between a moving figure and static, decaying architectural lines, planes and volumes. This collection of jewelry celebrates this beautifully balanced relationship that is showcased through the art form of street skating.
Come see Christine’s show which goes live this Wednesday at The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Check below for details.
