Contemporary art you can wear. The jewellery pieces of Yoko Takirai and Pietro Pellitteri are small pieces of art: light, elegant, and unique. After graduating from university in the United States in 1995, Yoko moved to Florence, where she honed her creativity at the Le Arti Orafe school. In 2002, she founded her business – the contemporary jewellery company, Takirai Design. Shortly after her company’s founding, Yoko partnered with Pietro Pellitteri, designer and art director at Pellitteri Design. Together, they create jewellery with innovative designs. In 2018 Yoko and Pietro opened a gallery-workshop in the heart of Florence, where they continue to receive numerous awards and international recognition. Their collections have been exhibited in numerous shows both in Italy and abroad and are part of the permanent collections of several international museums – including the Silver Museum of Palazzo Pitti. Takirai Design creates innovative jewellery. The inspiration of the work is translated to a geometric space, revealing lightness and elegance. Their creative spirit is expressed in simple forms which evolve from their purity.
