The Otti set’s design plays with a combination of triangles and ellipses that are similar to the petals of a flower.

Both choker and earrings have two ways to wear them together or separately.
This model is a tribute to Otti Berger the Bauhaus textile artist. She was one of the few women who managed to teach at the school. In 1936 she was banned from working in Germany due to her Jewish origins, and she was forced to close her business. It was in this period that most of the Bauhaus professors, including her boyfriend Ludwig Hilberseimer, managed to obtain visas and go to the United States. Otti Berger tried to do the same since in 1938 László Moholy-Nagy invited her to join the New Bauhaus in Chicago. Looking for work and waiting for a visa, she spent some time in London but due to her mother's illness and the inability to find a job in England (she did not speak the language and had hearing problems that made learning even more difficult, in 1938 she was forced to return to Croatia. Unfortunately, in April 1944 she was deported to Auschwitz along with her family, and died there.
