Item description for Friedrich Becker: Kinetic Jewellery by Friedrich Becker...

Movement came to be the main theme of Friedrich Becker's artistic work. In the early 1960s, he began to create the first kinetic jewellery objects that remain constantly in motion due to natural body movements. Becker is the inventor of kinetic jewellery. The ideas behind his small sculptures, having the intention of a constructivist language of forms, are also translated into his large-scale sculptures. This documentation is the first survey of the many-sided oeuvre of this significant artist: all areas of his work are represented from the 1950s to his unexpected death in May 1997. Text in English and German

Reviews - What do customers think about Friedrich Becker: Kinetic Jewellery?

Gorgeous book. Becker was a genius designer.  Feb 23, 2005
Whether you're interested in kinetic jewelry, or you just like beautiful photos of jewelry, this book is fantastic. I've never seen work like his anywhere. For him, kinetic is not just a matter of adding some hinges or dangles, but designing hidden devices that allow the jewelry to change its shape, or to move in surprising ways.

Get it as a fabulous coffee table book, or an invaluable reference work. It can be difficult to obtain, but is well worth the wait.
Unbelievable!  May 1, 2000
This retrospective volume is so immense and impressive in scale and quality it is hard to describe. Becker's influence on modern jewelry design is so far reaching that many take many of his trademarks (geometric aesthetic coupled with his obsession with movement and kinetics) for granted in modern metals design. While this book may be a bit expensive for private ownership, it is a must have for any art focused library collection or jewelry school.
