The word parti - in architectural speak - is the initial idea sketch. The first step. With these bangles, we wanted to honor Geoffrey Bawa's design process. He was the father of the Tropical Modernism style in architecture. It's a very distinct and varied style - the main link we noticed was the fluctuation between rigidity and fluidity. This bangle set harnesses that same energy and pays tribute to his process.
