The jewellery designer, Helena Rohner, who has participated in the metalwork of ONESIXONE handbags, was awarded the Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts in 2014 during a solemn act in Sevilla, presided by Their Royal Majesties. A well-‐deserved recognition for all her years devoted to design and to spread the brand ‘Spain’ all over the world.
Merit and work
The 2014 Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts is that distinction granted by the Spanish Ministry of Culture every year to those personalities who stand out for their good work in artistic areas such as music, performing, literature or design.
Among the winners of the 2014 awards – that took place in a ceremony presided over by the Spanish king and queen – we could find Helena Rohner, the Canarian designer who has dedicated more than twenty years to the creation of jewelry, fashion and other made out of materials such as silver, wood or porcelain. Among the distinctive features of the artist, it can be found pure lines, simple shapes and the minimalism that comes from nature, which prevail in all her artistic work.
In 1995, this designer founded her own company which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2005. In addition, during her long career she has participated in several collaborations with some important firms; her most recent ones it can be found her participation in the creation of the golden jewellery appliqué that beautify the Onesixone handbags, which manage to bring distinction and personality to them.
Without any doubt, the contribution of Helena Rohner to our luxury handbags designs brand incorporates an added value to the artistic manifestation that the creations claim for themselves, meaning that these bags, besides pretending to be blank canvases over where the artist can create their paintings, they are also jewels in their entirety conformed by details such as these golden jewellery appliqué that the designer incorporates. Undoubtedly, the result of the participation of these renowned artists in the creation of a single one accessory, ONESIXONE bag, could not be anything other than a “piece of art”.
