Season I: Elements

by Derrick Cruz

Derrick Cruz optimistically blends form and function in his inaugural collection for Betroth. All four arrangements draw from disparate sources of inspiration and exploit contemporary manmade shapes to animate earthly forces. From architectural silhouettes of brutalist design to the growing tendrils of a climbing plant, his rings do not merely mimic the elements, they wed the made to the natural.

Cruz is the founder of Betroth. He lives and works in New York City and is a faculty member at Parson’s New School for Design. Learn more at DerrickCruz.com
