Four essential letters in today’s world – Gims, who has become an icon of French urban pop, now surprises us and reveals his multiple talents with the creation of a work of art in crystal signed with the Maison Daum.

After studying at the Beaux Arts (graphic design and communication – applied arts), Gims kept his artistic streak alive and realized his dream by touching various fields. Passionate about know-how, he took up the challenge to design and to create his first work of art in France by one of the most beautiful French luxury Maisons.
His creation, a sculpture-like vase with the features of African masks with Art Deco influences, is the reflection of his bicultural background between France and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Inspired by his roots, Gims wanted to “pay tribute to Africa” with his “Origine” vase, in a limited edition of 8. With an almost lyrical interpretation and pure contemporary lines, Gims highlights his artistic influences to create a hollow blue vase, 56 cm tall (22 inches).
