2022: A year in review

Berlin, 31.12.2022
As the year comes to an end, 's founder Amélie Riech pens her reflections of 2022.

I've come to realise that with every year that passes, comes a new set of challenges. There are many things that keep me up at night, but mostly the future of our children and this beautiful planet. But as we all know after the age of covid, uncertainty brings about change, a break from old ways and a new way of thinking. 

Channelling my energy in the only way I know how, I set myself a motto at the start of this year 'We must move, we must inspire and we must create, no matter what happens'. Today, I am proud to say that has not only grown but entered into new realms of design. It's been a year of new colour, fresh jewellery, lots of design exhibitions showcasing larger than life sculptures, and our first foray into the homeware category with an exclusive collaboration with H&M Home. Oh, and how can I forget the wonderful VIPs and celebrities adorned in at red carpet appearances around the world including Tracee Ellis Ross, Katy Perry, and Kylie Jenner.

My dream of becoming a full 360 design brand is manifesting and that is with thanks to you all, who support us with unquestionable loyalty. We can't wait to share more with you in 2023. 

On behalf of our entire team at , we wish you a Happy New Year!

Love, light and peace,

Founder, uncommon matters
