Noon Passama is a Bangkok-born designer. In 2007, she moved to the Netherlands where she studied to be a jewellery designer at Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Since her graduation in 2010, Noon’s work has been exhibited in various renowned institutions and platforms, such as The Design Museum in London, Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Design Miami and Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. Her main interest is based on existing jewellery typologies in connection to broader subjects, for example, identity and language. Noon approaches intangible concepts with the tangibility of the materials she has in her hands. For the recent projects, she puts focus on the chain, the classic jewellery archetype. Her statement, “making a chain is like composing a sentence out of a transformable typeface” becomes a starting point for the latest body of work influenced by the idea of a numeral system; this project results in a series of jewellery pieces and a book collaboration. She is interested in jewellery’s roles in different contexts.
