The PUNOS jewellery series was originally designed to celebrate Finland's 100th anniversary, when the foundation stone of the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, a partner of LIIA Jewellery, will also mark the 100th anniversary. The jewellery celebrates Plaza's history, bringing it with a fresh touch to the present day. The timeless design of the jewellery fits into any situation and has a symbolism that many can identify with.
“When I was designing jewellery for Plaza and Finland's anniversary year, I wanted to highlight the wonderful history of Plaza, which is also reflected in an incredibly stunning old building. I remembered the wooden sculptures of symbols that depict the commercial history of the building. One of these symbols was a rope. In my opinion, it is also a great illustration of the versatility, cooperation and working together, which are also related to Plaza and also to Finnishness. Plaza Hotel has many facets: it is part of the international hotel chain, on the other hand it is a meeting place for city dwellers and part of SOK Finland. We Finns are multi-talented and there is strength in doing things together. The different threads of the rope represent different qualities, different people, who are even stronger when combined. When two different yarns are woven together, PUNOS is stronger than the yarns alone. ”Jewellery designer & goldsmith Laura Ikonen / LIIA Jewellery
