GOA | Mirror
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.
One of Goa's trademarks is its distinct architecture, a singular combination of imposing European façades matched with rich colors and exotic verandas. Resembling an hypnotic flower, our Goa mirror is a sensory experience just like the spices, flavors and fragrances that the first Portuguese sailors encountered in what is now India. Goa is more than a mirror - with its bronze-colored mirror "leaves" and gold leaf finish, it is a mesmerizing decorative piece capable of invoking the essence of fascinating foreign lands.
