Moritz von Coellen is an award winning contemporary jeweler from Germany, who graduated from the Staatliche Zeichenakademie Hanau in 2017.
Von Coellen comes from a background in bicycle mechanics and BMX riding which brings a rather technical approach to his jewelry. He often uses a mechanism (or joining technique) as a starting point, which then becomes integral to the design.
His work is focused in the beauty of simplicity. Using clean shapes, structures, and patterns, he creates designs focused on intelligent construction rather than purely decorative elements.
