Nageoire Client Aurora is a recent master’s degree graduate in Jewelry Design from the Istituto Europeo di Design. She also has an undergraduate degree in Industrial Design. Combining her two degrees guided her to a strong overall understanding of the function and decoration of jewelry. Aurora enjoys complicating life and incorporates this into her daily tasks. She is also detail-oriented. Nageoire is inspired by the organic shapes found within the sea, specifically the Betta Splendens. She pays close attention to the complex yet simple movements found in nature to create the details in her collection.

Nageoire will be a RETREAT from the hectic reality of everyday life. As soon as a client walks in he should feel the relief mimicked through a breath of fresh air. By using rhythm and MOVEMENT, the store will cater to the unique individuality of the clients. An emphasis would be placed on the PURITY and OASIS that each collection offers.

Serenbe Residence “Serenbe exemplifies a community where people authentically live, work, learn, and play in celebration of life’s beauty. Serenbe is a place where connections between people, nature, and the arts are nourished.” -

My goal is to create a luxury, family-oriented space that is modern and bright. The space will be useable by people of all ages and it will coordinate with nature and the surrounding community. The design of the living space will be an open floor plan with high ceilings and large windows to create a space that is spacious and visually connected to the outside. An open floor plan that is open to the second floor will help create a connection between areas to make the family feel more united in their home. Clean lines, simple patterns, and light colors will make the space feel more modern and bright. The design will include moderate furniture and materials so that the space can be used by children and adults and have a feeling of both informality and luxury.
