Design by Ali Bakova
Memento Mori, from the Latin ‘Remember you will die’, is less a doom-laden prophecy, but instead an inducement to live every day to the full, as if it might be your last.
A reflection on life’s inevitable end, the NUDE Memento Mori collection takes a modern approach to the medieval mantra. Created by the Istanbul-based designer, Ali Bakova, this small skull-shaped ornament is cut from clear lead-free crystal with facets that explode in luminosity. The precise harmony of this piece culminates in a sculptural aesthetic —at once functional and artistic.
