Banafsheh Hemmati

Dismantling the Order of Islamic Geometry

By

The Iranian designer-artist Banafsheh Hemmati has designed jewelry, furniture, landscape, light, and accessories for more than 20 years.

  • She began designing jewelry to go with the clothes she designed for herself.  “I could find no jewelry to suit them,” says Hemmati. “Ultimately, I designed the jewelry that suited them best.”
  • Born in Tehran in 1974, Hemmati is a master’s graduate in industrial design. Her passion for philosophy later led to her obtain a PhD in philosophy of art. Her doctoral thesis was concerned with the philosophical foundations of the relationship between art and geometry.
  • She’s the founder of Banafsheh Design Studio, in Tehran.
