Born in 1948 in Zurich, Switzerland, Otto Künzli is one of the most important figures in the world of contemporary jewellery.

About

 During his long career, he has skillfully worked the relationship between jewellery and the wearer’s body, as well as the potential of jewellery as a medium of communication to build connections between individuals and societies. In the process, he has transformed jewelry into a universal metaphor for humanity and social relations. Thanks to his consistently conceptual approach, as well as the humor he expresses through his works, Künzli has gained attention and regard beyond the field of jewellery.
This exhibition was originally shown at Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich and has toured to MUDAC – Musée de design et d’arts appliqués contemporains, Lausanne. In Tokyo, we bring together over 200 works, ranging from his earliest pieces dating from 1967 to his most recent work created especially so that we may show it you on this occasion. The exhibition also includes drawings, photographs and installations.
