Heritage Collection is the essence of a country, a portrait of a world of cultural elements uniquely confined to the root of a person. 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 with 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 Santa Maria da Vitória Monastery, literally the Monastery of the Battle, is a Dominican convent in the civil parish of Batalha, in the district of Leiria built in 1386 by Portuguese king D. João I as gratitude to Virgin Mary for the Aljubarrota Battle’s victory. Its gothic architecture intermingled with the Manueline style inspired our designers to create Victoria mirror through using unique technics and crafts.
