The Sham­sah Troisors com­puter from Cot­tin Paris

The spe­cial­is­ing piece is in cre­ated be­spoke by com­put­ers Cot­tin Paris, and a tech­no­log­i­cal French com­pany ac­ces­sories.

A “mar­riage of fine art and tech­nol­ogy”, Cot­tin’s com­put­ers come with Win­dows 8 Pro and an In­tel Core i7 3.2 GHz turbo boost. They take an im­pres­sive 15 sec­onds to start up and three sec­onds to shut down. A high-def­i­ni­tion, 15.6-inch screen is fit­ted with 0.8mm di­a­mond glaz­ing, while the key­board is made of pure, di­a­mond-en­graved alu­minium. Be­yond that, clients can choose from an al­most un­lim­ited range of lux­ury fin­ish­ings – there is the choice of pre­cious metals, in­clud­ing gold, bronze and nickel, or mar­quetry for the com­puter cas­ing, which can also be en­graved. For the palm rests, clients can choose from a range of lux­u­ri­ous leathers, while a dec­o­ra­tive bar can be made from wood, pre­cious stones and metals, or any­thing else that your heart may de­sire. The Sham­sah Troisors was cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Sara Bran, a “den­tel­lière sur” or gold lace­maker, and was in­spired by the iconog­ra­phy of Is­lamic Art. Bran spent 30 hours com­plet­ing the draw­ing it­self, while the hand­cra ed lace­mak­ing process took more than

200 hours. A team of jewellers then spent a fur­ther 100 hours bring­ing Bran’s cre­ation to life, which in­volved crimp­ing 16 pear-shaped di­a­monds into the 0.5mm-wide gold lace de­sign that fea­tures on the ex­te­rior of the piece. The com­puter is plated in 24K pale gold, which was also used for the dec­o­ra­tive bar. Palm rests are made of ivory-coloured al­li­ga­tor leather. All of the com­pany’s com­put­ers come with a twoyear war­ranty and two year’s ac­cess to the global concierge

ser­vice, UUU. Hav­ing been on show at the Mashreq VIP Lounge dur­ing Art Dubai, the Sham­sah Troisors is now on sale at Cot­tin’s newly opened shop in Dubai’s Emi­rates Tower.
