is a maker of decadent accessories, including bold, over-sized colorful jewelry.
Much of the uniqueness of Dioscuri rests in the fact that it is the vision
and creation of identical twins Teman and Teran Evans. Both were educated
as architects at the prestigious Harvard Design School and have worked for
the world-renowned Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, designer of the new Prada
boutiques in both New York and Beverly Hills. Partnering with fellow Harvard
Design School alumnus, Harin Tantongsirisak, the twins have fashioned Dioscuri
through the tool palette of today's modern architect: an obsession with color,
tone, material quality and surface. Their unique eye for detail was crucial
to 'Fruit Salad,' Dioscuri's latest collection of high-gloss tropical wood
bangle bracelets, offered in a vivid array of colors for spring/summer 2006.
Every Dioscuri piece is all about the material that it is crafted from...and
absolutely nothing else. The result is collection after collection of incredibly
striking jewelry with a quiet, modern simplicity.
