The Home Collection has organically evolved from Tomas Maier’s first design, a single bench which he created alongside Bottega Veneta’s skilled artisans in 2006. Bottega Veneta now holds a dedicated furniture Atelier in Vicenza, in the Veneto region of Italy where the brand originates.
The new collection, presented in Milan, features suedes colours, clean lines and a strong and polished combination of bronze and matt oak. In a further celebration of Bottega Veneta’s profound affinity and identification with impeccable craftsmanship, the sofas and tables are joined by a chest of drawers entirely sheathed in suede or leather with a top in marble or wood and discreet yet outstanding bronze handles which feature the iconic intrecciato pattern on the sides. A series of sterling silver collectible boxes, each bearing the name of a planet and embellished with semi-precious stones, along with a hand painted porcelain dining service add the finishing touches to the atmosphere.
A collaboration between Bottega Veneta and Osanna Visconti di Modrone, the Italian designer, produced distinctive and singularly individualistic designs: a set of bronze tables with a surface that pays tribute to the house’s signature intrecciato motif enriches the collection.
The new collection was unveiled at the Palazzo Gallarati Scotti, an 18th century palazzo in Via Borgospesso in the heart of Milan which houses the Bottega Veneta Home boutique.
