PRODUCT: Kuen Man Ray Necklace
SIZE: Chain is 20" long and pendant is 1.5" long
MATERIALS: 925 Polished sterling silver
DESIGNER: IC Design in Collaboration with the Man Ray Trust
The solid sterling silver necklace is inspired by photographs and paintings by Surrealist artist Man Ray (1890 - 1976) of the famous Kuen Surface. Using parameters found by the German Mathematician Alfred Enneper (1830 - 1885) wood or plaster study models of the complex surface have been produced for mathematics institutes since the beginning of the 20th century.

Man Ray saw the form, which possessed constant "negative curvature," wed rational mathematical elegance with visual beauty. This necklace features a snake chain with a spring ring closure.
All proceeds from the MCA Store support the exhibitions and programs of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
