Amanda’s own story begins in 1984, in Brazil. A decade ago she moved to the UK, and went to the University of Bath to complete a degree in Modern Languages and European Studies, for which she lived in Rome for a year. In Brazil she studied architecture before moving to England. After an experience in the fashion industry with womens-wear label Isolda, Amanda decided to pursue her passion of design. This translated itself into jewelry design and the founding of KATTRI.
Amanda believes that all the things she has seen and experienced in life (plus her genetic fabric) influence the aesthetic choice of the jewelry pieces she creates. However, she has a clear attraction to pure geometric shapes and repetition. Strong visual impact is achieved through the structure of the pieces themselves rather than through ornamentation.
The bold shapes, lines and curves of the Geometry Collection point to a commitment to purity and clarity through the rejection of all non-essential forms, features or concepts. Beauty born of minimalism provides the collection’s guiding creative impetus. The Japanese aesthetic principle called MA was also an important inspiration when designing this collection. This idea says that by valuing empty spaces and the absence of unnecessary features the essential characteristic of the materials used are revealed. Combining craftsmanship and savoir-faire with modern design, technology and industrial processes the Geometry Collection exemplifies KATTRI’s dedication to simplicity of form and innovative composition.
