Nanette Gabriele collection titled: Our Spatial Imprint is rooted in the study of the connection between our inner emotional being and interior space. Nanette developed a fascination with how private spaces influence our mood, sleep, and energy. In recent years, she began to struggle with chronic insomnia which led her to find approaches to achieve spatial balance and calmness within her own home. Nanette studied the practice of Feng Shui and utilized it to gain stability over stress.

After meeting with a Feng Shui professional, she applied the rules to every aspect of her life. This became the basis for materials, silhouettes, and colors. Inspired by Louise Bourgeois' insomnia drawings, Nanette created a series of illustrations done before bedtime as a form of meditation that later turned into print designs. Even in their psychedelic nature, the prints release a sense of peace through various color tonalities and compositions.

Nanette strives to work with repurposed materials found in interior spaces such as wood rattan, chandelier crystals, and lampshades. Her work became extremely relevant to our current environment and she has found great relief in her personal exploration.

Sourcing Materials

Nanette Gabriele focuses on sourcing materials for accessories sustainably, challenging herself to create with what is available. Our Spatial Imprint uses metal knobs, chandelier crystals, and lamp shades that Nanette found in antique stores over the course of three months. These later turned into statement earrings, bags, and tops. There is beauty and mystery in knowing these pieces have a history to them that is unknown to the wearer.
