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.
Like all pieces in the Heritage collection, Camelia folding screen and mirror draws its inspiration from a world of cultural elements confined to our history. The famed Portuguese tile adorning this piece uses the 17th century style pattern “camélia”, still seen today embellishing many of the walls in Lisbon. Combining classic floral motifs with mirrored surfaces, Camelia is a versatile and stylish room divider, an ideal fit for both classic and contemporary spaces. Built like a traditional Portuguese façade, the structure of this folding screen and mirror is composed of solid cherry wood.
