The new Bottega Veneta Home Collection has been presented during Salone del Mobile in Milan, involving different products as A stainless steel collection of flatware featuring a vintage finishing and laser cut intrecciato pattern and
And collection of eight unique silver sterling boxes with semi-precious stones named after different planets. The company embraces the warmth and beauty of the highest quality materials meticulously crafted to meld into a timeless yet innovative design. The result is an harmonious and seamless balance of textures, design, functionality and the finest craftsmanship for a sophisticated and understated sense of home.
The pieces were created by Tomas Maier, Bottega Veneta Creative Director, to come together complementing each other through form and colour, from the clean lines of the Rudi seating elements to the utterly modern arch tables in a strong and polished combination of bronze and matt oak.
Refined suedes and leathers, bold, strong and contrasting travertine, bronze and oak, marble and silver as well as delicate bone fine porcelain are now presented with this new line against the quietly elegant backdrop of Palazzo Gallarati Scotti, an 18th century palazzo in Via Borgospesso in the heart of Milan which houses the Bottega Veneta Home boutique.
The historic beauty of the frescoes by Carlo Innocenzo Carlone and Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, coffered ceilings and stone walls creates a unique contrast with the precious art works that will be displayed within the space during the Salone del Mobile. The selection, curated by Tomas Maier, includes works from the Robilant + Voena gallery by contemporary masters such as Alberto Burri, Agostino Bonalumi, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Lucio Fontana, alongside a Jean Hans Arp sculpture, marble busts from the 1st century BC and Roman columns.
The Home Collection has organically evolved from Tomas Maier’s first design, a single bench which he created alongside Bottega Veneta’s skilled artisans in 2006. Since then the house has developed the home design and presented full collections of furniture and home accessories, for some of which Bottega Veneta has collaborated with esteemed manufacturers as Koenigliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin for porcelain and Poltrona Frau for seating.
The rest of the collection has been enlarged, including a sofa, a new version of the bookcase, a Column table and the glassware with the Martini and the Champagne glasses, both available in the transparent version and in the Ash/Cigar color combination
