THE JEAN DUPONT was born during the total solar eclipse of March 20th 2015 in Berlin out of a dialogue about contemporary art, design and commerce that had lasted ten years until that day. Inspired by the most unusual light shining through the windows of the former headquarters of the socialist party in East Berlin Anne-Katrin Ahrens and Christopher Peterka felt that it was time to act. Within the hour they founded a studio for experimental research on the interface between the digital sphere and the physical world of precious materials. 

In 2016 the studio named THE JEAN DUPONT launches its own concept store presenting its first ever collection of typographic jewellery.
