Heritage Collection is the essence of a country, a portrait of a world of cultural elements uniquely confined to the root of a people. It is that legacy that gives us, today, symbols that we’re proud to claim as fruits of our ingenuity, as well as symbols which were adopted and taken as our own, from paths crossed momentarily in the past. Heritage, a collection that catalogues what is essentially the birth of a nation, is completed by pieces that reflect important landmarks, in days of yore.
With Heritage, Malabar moves into a classic, more ornate design philosophy in order to stay true to the inspirations, setting itself worlds apart from the first collection, World Architects. Cornices, friezes, carving, tiles, gold and silver leaf, wrought iron, ceramics and other time-honored elements and styles will be some of its characteristic components. To create these pieces, we need more than skill from our artisans and designers: a monumental amount of passion for art and attention to detail are necessary to complete a worthy tribute piece.
Curling, twisting and plaiting of fine threads of metal results in a sublime artistic expression named Filigree. This piece of art of ancient origin, that has only a few knowledgeable artisans reproducing the technique today, is proudly displayed on the Viana Floor Mirror. Gold filigree can be seen embellishing the surrounding structure of mirror, which carries all the lines of traditional Portuguese furniture. The black lacquer and the high gloss varnish finish update the classic charm of its design. Gold plated brass accents were delicately added to the legs of the mirror, revealing the ultimate attention to detail.
