Daniel Arsham Transforms the Iconic Tiffany Blue Box

Pearl Fontaine

7 September 2021

Today, Tiffany & Co. revealed a collaboration with Daniel Arsham, which invited the artist to recreate the jewelry brand’s little blue box. In 49 bronze sculptures, Arsham has juxtaposed the iconic packaging with his own signature eroded aesthetic.

Finding inspiration in Tiffany & Co.’s recognizable for its light blue hue and silky white ribbon, Arsham explored an imagined future and the house’s heritage, which was founded in 1837. The sculptural box appears as though put through the test of time, in the vein of Arsham’s “Future Archeological” series. The artist used a weathered teal hue of aged bronze, the box’s structure worn away to reveal bits and pieces of shiny metal.

“I always gravitate towards items that are immediately culturally recognizable. The Tiffany Blue Box ® has that power,” said Arsham. “I wanted to address it in a way different than how it was originally intended by giving it a distressed, aged quality which represents its history, how much of a fixture it is in our world today, and how it will continue to be relevant decades, even centuries from now.”

As part of the artistic collaboration, the house has created a limited-edition bracelet for the occasion, the Tiffany x Arsham Studio Knot bracelet. Inside each of the sculptural boxes is an elegant 18 karat white gold bracelet, embellished with a twist of brilliant teal tsavorite. Each of the 49 pieces comes housed in a miniature branded shipping crate, stamped with a Tiffany & Co. x Arsham Studio logo.
