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.
Plants of Mediterranean origin became the signature elements used to create baroque ornaments in architecture and artifacts. Thanks to the detailed baroque carvings on the Figen bench that creates intense shadows, its dramatic appeal is undeniable. The highly ornamented legs are adorned with foliage, which have been hand-carved by artisans from wood, finished with white lacquer and a high gloss varnish. The resting area is made of walnut wood veneers, chosen for its ability to soften, lighten and modernize a space. Figen’s strength lies in its versatility; simultaneously a bench and an unmatched decorative piece of art, of classic and modern influence.
