PLATINA was established 1999 to provide an audience the art of jewellery. Since the start, many contemporary jewellery artists have been invited to exhibit and sell unique pieces in Stockholm, artists we think are working with contemporary issues and expressions.
Within the space we have a gallery, shop and studio and we cooperate with other institutions, galleries and museums with magic things as exhibitions, popup events, experimental projects, lectures, education, seminars and more. During the years we have been working internationally with amazing artists and clients from all over the world. At your visit you find unique pieces made by jewellery artist and pieces made in our studio. You are welcome to place an order. We make jewellery as wedding rings and unique pieces as gifts for all kind of special occasions.
PLATINA opened up for the public at Odengatan in Stockholm by Sofia Björkman, Åsa Skogberg and Marie-Helen Bornhall. Since 2009 Sofia Björkman is the owner. The interior was designed by the Swedish architect group OUR. Their assignment was awarded 2001with the prize for best interior design by Swedish design magazine Forum. 2013, 12 years later, Sofia Björkman was awarded by the organisation Svensk Form, for the work she has done with the gallery. In 2019, PLATINA moved to a new space at Bondegatan 6 in Stockholm. Here you will also meet Helena Skolling. (Photo : Urban Jörén)
- The interest in huge themes such as life and death blooms through the encounters with microscopic and unfamiliar things that are hidden in the familiarity around us.
For Heejoo Kim, the process of putting metal layers on the object carved out of wax in a bath by electroforming means life creation. Thickness of piled layers represents time and colours the accumulation of time. We like to call it high craft and art.
Heejoo Kim works and lives in Seoul. She received her Master here in 2011 from Kookmin University and a Doctoral course 2018. She has also studied at Hochschule Pforzheim.
