WHERE IT MAT­TERS

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - LIVING -

If man­ners maketh the man, where cour­tesy can el­e­vate a man above his coarser brethren, so it is that it’s the de­tails that de­fine a well­made piece of fur­ni­ture, es­pe­cially in an age where we are des­per­ately try­ing to re­vive the art of crafts­man­ship. This is beau­ti­fully demon­strated in To­mas Maier’s last home col­lec­tion for Bottega Veneta, in which he clev­erly bal­ances tex­ture, de­sign and func­tion­al­ity in a se­ries of light­ing el­e­ments, as well as ta­bles and chairs. Seen here is a din­ing room set­ting in the brand’s new mai­son at Madi­son Av­enue in New York. The dra­matic large scale chan­de­lier (60cm across and 35cm in height) is cast in brushed bronze us­ing the lost wax tech­nique, creat­ing a tac­tile in­trec­ciato tex­ture, which has be­come a hall­mark of the lauded leather goods spe­cial­ist.

The new Bottega Veneta home col­lec­tion can be viewed at www.bot­te­gaveneta.com/my.
