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.
Inspired by the ornamental motifs in antique metal armors, the Armor Console perfectly recreates the force and the spirit of Portugal’s first king. With its distinguished legs, carved from wood and finished with sophisticated silver leaf, Armor subtly combines great strength with elegance.
This emblematic piece glorifies Portuguese culture as well as Malabar’s design.
