PILAR | 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.
The signature imprint of Malabar’s baroque is felt in the heavily intricate and meticulous carving of the Pilar mirror. Borrowing the flower ornaments from beautifully adorned baroque churches, palaces, manors or monuments, the eye-catching Pilar brings culture, detail and history to noble interiors. This awe-inspiring mirror is made to stand the test of time with its frame in wood with gold leaf finishing, carved elements in black lacquered wood and a gold polished brass starburst.
