In 2009, during the recession time, he was made redundant, which made him follow another path. Trained at Dublin's NCAD under the tuition of renowned jeweller Erika Marks, Filip quickly gained a position as one of the country's recognized contemporary jewellers. His work now features regularly in various exhibitions around Europe and is available in stores in Ireland and abroad.

Quietly Loud

Filip Vanas' work fully reflects his architectural background: simple shapes, dramatic contrasts, vivid colours, unusual materials and a long and structured design process. Despite his complex technical approach, Filip always tries to keep his designs as simple as possible, so that the beauty of pure geometrical shapes amplified by the colours can stand out.
