THE WISE POET ROBERT BROWNING ONCE WROTE "LESS IS MORE," AND MANY DESIGNERS, LIKE LEGENDARY ARCHITECT MIES VAN DER ROHE, HAVE FOLLOWED THAT MANTRA.
But simplicity itself is one of the hardest things to achieve style-wise: it has to appear effortless. Leave it to two architects, who go by their initials HK+NP, to design a perfect bangle. And by “perfect,” we mean it has a minimal yet sculptural shape, glistening in sterling silver. Its elegant design mimicks the image of a water ripple, and also follows the ingenious Möbius strip. Available in mirror ($300), hairline ($300) or matte ($330) finishes, the Twist Bangle is the kind of bauble both Robert and Mies would approve of. —Anya Georgijevic
