Technology has a hidden internal beauty, which quickly becomes obsolete. This is why designer Paola Mirai has transformed some of technology's old glories into must-have pieces of jewellery.

The electronic soul of these objects has now been brought to life through "Ortomeccanico", a five-year project by the Milan designer Paola Mirai, which pushed her to search for her "philosopher's gold", a pure and perfectly transparent material.

In her laboratory, Paola creates mythical sculptures and transparent jewels, in which the goldsmith's most ancient techniques meet industrial materials.
