When our founder Aleksandar Kovacevic Kiki learned of the emerging technology of 3D printing, it awakened something within him, a desire to be part of this huge milestone in production technique, a potentially new industrial revolution. He felt now was a pivotal moment in manufacturing industry, with new horizons expanding in design and production of jewelry. The brand AKK was launched with the desire to push the envelope of modern design, looking into the future.
Aleksandar Kovacevic Kiki studied at Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts, which armed him with a keen eye for aesthetics, and a grounding in classic fashion design. Although he spent the next few years designing knitwear, he has always been attracted to the use of metal in his work even since he was a student, so the migration he made towards jewelry seemed like a natural progression.
Having experimented on numerous jewelry designs, he realized the potential of 3D printing and subsequently founded AKK in 2016.
The dawn of 3D printing technology was an enormous inspiration in the launch of the brand. It is so current, so cutting edge and still developing. We at AKK feel like explorers on a new planet. There are endless directions to look at, travel through, experiment with. It liberates jewelry design, it removes certain limits, it allows for interplay and improvisation and puts more creative control in the hands of the designer.
The Poly range is just the start. We are excited by the endless avenues that can be travelled down. We are hoping you will join us and enjoy the journey as well.
