Hemmerle’s 125th Anniversary

Hemmerle International

Transcending opulence, Hemmerle’s jewelry designs are marvels of both aesthetics and engineering. For their 125th anniversary, staged at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Temple of Dendur, we teamed up with David Stark Design and Frost Productions to project an immersive, 66-minute animated film along the room’s walls. The film took inspiration from Hemmerle’s diverse oeuvre, abstracting their inspiration and chronicling the imaginative stories behind their process.
