This black and white bracelet is an iconic piece. It is Françoise van den Bosch’s best known design, and at first glance a self-evident piece. The ingenious design, based on two separate circle-shaped parts that simply slide into one another, is kept in position by the arm. In 1990, at the occasion of the 10-year anniversary of the Françoise van den Bosch Foundation, jewellery designer Jan Matthesius reproduced this bracelet one hundred times. The popular multiple quickly sold out.
