CADA jewellery collection
The Munich-based designer duo Herbert and Annette Kopp are the names behind the CADA jewellery collection. Inspired by the arts, music and the underground culture, the collection showcases bold, beautiful pieces which make an elegant yet strong statement of style. CADA’s flamboyant jewellery collection itself is a work of art, as a centre of high carat and art together. The name CADA stands today in Germany for trend-setting in jewellery design and art.
Herbert and Annette Kopp met at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. He was studying painting, she was a silversmith; the rest is history. It didn´t take long for their shop, which opened in 1986, to become a hot spot for collectors, architects and avantgardists. In the early years, the oversized rings and bracelets were the best sellers, as the Love and Peace designs are today. The couple also has published a coffee-table book with the title: Permanent Trouble which showcases artwork of artists like Hansjorg Dobliar, Paul McCarthy, and Gert and Uwe Tobias, among others, when those artists were still outsiders. Those ''youngsters'' contrast with the Kopp's works by an older generation, such as Sylvie Fleury, Gunther Forg, Mike Kelley and Martin Kippenberger. Anyone who follows the European avant-garde will be fascinated by the evolution and breadth of their unique collection.
