Daniela Jacobs, Parsons graduate and the designer behind ARC, is inspired by colors, textures, shapes and sounds found in nature. From jewelry to home objects, her collection explores and experiments with wearable and functional sculpture. She sees ARC as a concept, not product, and at its core, a body of work that seeks to encourage mindfulness and individual creative expression. Made primarily of porcelain and metal, her pieces are seasonless and bold in their simplicity.
