Collection of jewels inspired by the catenary arches that Gaudí projected in numerous works and that characterize his architecture.
Antoni Gaudí was an architect known for his unique and innovative designs, particularly in his use of natural shapes and forms. One of the techniques he used in his work was the use of catenary arches. A catenary arc is a type of curve that is formed by a chain or cable hanging between two points. It is a natural shape that is formed by gravity, as the curve is the most efficient shape for the chain to distribute weight evenly.
Gaudí used this technique in several of his works, including the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, and Casa Milá. He believed that the use of catenary arches not only provided structural stability, but also added aesthetic appeal to his designs.
In the case of the Sagrada Familia, Gaudí used catenary arches in the construction of the nave, the central part of the basilica. The arches give the nave a sense of height and lightness, while also allowing more open space for visitors to move about.
Overall, Gaudí's use of catenary arches was just one example of his innovative approach to architecture and helped establish him as one of the most important architects of the modernist movement.
The Parabola collection is inspired by this architectural element to create jewels with a three-dimensional effect that recall the architecture of Antoni Gaudí.
