Antonio Ben Chimol
Antonio Ben Chimol (Bologna, October 26th 1966) attended his higher education on dental mechanics until he leaves Italy, piloting sails through the Atlantic ocean. Due to those trips he arrives to Barcelona, after living in Martinica, Paris, Rome, London and New York. He is a natural born artist who knows how to mix passion, courage, elegance, irreverence and provocation in each one of his creations. His inspiration comes from what surrounds us, applied to unusual areas, where technology, mechanics or aeronautical engineering prevail, basic elements to reflect in his jewels, adapted in functionality, gears, resistance and genius. 15 years ago he was worldwide known for taking advantage using the magnetism for fashion jewelry, simplifying the pieces use and bringing beauty and originality to the clasps.
