‘Jewellery is Architecture in its smallest form.
It is only by thinking in multiple dimensions that we can create designs
that are at once almost impossibly complex; yet effortlessly simple.’


MARIE BOLTENSTERN
Dipl.-Ing. Architecture, MSc. Emergent Technologies and Design
Founder and Head of Design at BOLTENSTERN

Marie Boltenstern, Founder and Head of Design at BOLTENSTERN, develops computationally generated designs and design systems made of precious metals. Together with her young team she is focusing on the development of a disruptive design- and production process for precious metal products. BOLTENSTERN is specialized in direct precious metal 3d printing, which allows for production of metal parts that cannot be produced by hand.

Marie gained her experience over the past years studying and working in Berlin, London, Paris and Vienna. With her design team she realized award-winning projects in Los Angeles and Toronto. Since 2014 she is teaching computational design strategies at the Architectural Association Visiting School in Jordan.

Holding a Masters in Emergent Technologies from the Architectural Association in London, as well as a Diploma in Architecture from Berlin University of Technology, Marie is working at the convergence of various scales. In 2013 she was working with Bollinger + Grohmann engineering in Paris as a 3D-Geometry specialist. Her realized projects range from precious metal products including Luxury Jewellery, to medium-scaled architectural installations, up to complex building structures.
