Wall-mounted framed 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.
Laureal wreaths have long been used as a symbol for victory, and in ancient Roman times were for crowning commanders and victors in battle. The Evora mirror is a Rococo-style carving of a gilded laurel branch, with a circular panoramic mirror at the center. The intricate etching of the branches is gold coated to look as though Evora was taken from the richly adorned walls of centenary churches. The classic Evora mirror is a definite statement piece, totally hand-carved and coated by hand, made for equally luxurious spaces that dare match its exuberance.
