PINN is a creative family team of architects and product designers, situated in Split, Croatia. In the jewelry business for 10 years, their latest collection “In spite of oblivion’’ was inspired by abandoned Dalmatian villages. This collection is their humble attempt to stop the oblivion.

Pinn is a family team of two generations of architects and designers from Split, with permanent jobs to create and live through art every day. Although always somehow involved with different forms of art expressions, a common innate connection with climate has always been their inspiration and driving force.


Their latest jewelry collection “In spite of Oblivion” was prompted by the disappearance of small Dalmatian villages as environments of our childhood, something we’ll always remember. Especially given the origin of the island of Korčula, some of the villages in the interior have left an indelible mark on memory. All of the jewelry from this collection is made from concrete, and is 100% handmade.

In addition to the construction of the jewelry, as the backbone of the concept, PINN evokes the ambience of the climate in which the settlements are shown, as these environments are impossible to show without the typical indigenous vegetation such as cypress trees or bushes of lavender.


While this collection is currently in the conceptual stage with no commercial application, PINN considers this their modest attempt to stop forgetting about the little Dalmatian villages.
