Fabian Florin did not come up with the idea for the subject on a drawing board in a Chur studio, but rather in Iceland, 2500 kilometers away. “During a trip through Iceland, the raw, archaic nature captivated me immensely. The more I dealt with the environment, the earth, the stones in Iceland, the more I realized the unbelievable nature we were given in Graubünden », says Bane. Due to the intensive study of the rock, the respect for time grew. Time that is able to lure Grisons nature treasures. Treasures like the oldest local gemstone: the Bündner Kristall. “The oldest city in Switzerland, represented by the oldest Graubünden gemstone – the picture in my mind’s eye fit perfectly,” continues Florin.
