#MDW14: Bottega Veneta Home

In celebration of the launch of Bottega Veneta’s 2014 Home collection,

Creative Director Tomas Maier hosted a private cocktail in Milan on

April 8th. Maier unveil an expanded Home Collection introducing

innovative color, texture and material to enrich iconic styles of the

collection. As always with Bottega Veneta’s creations, the collection

combines superb craftsmanship with modern, functional design.

 

 

 

“The evolution of our Home collection has been purposefully gradual and deliberate, as

we have never been interested in doing anything flashy or of-the-moment,” says 

 Tomas Maier. “Some of these new pieces are more rustic, others more refined,

but each one is versatile, functional and beautifully crafted to last a lifetime.”

 

 

 

Among the noteworthy additions: Significantly expanding options in lighting, an evolution of

existing variations introduce a couple of ceiling lamps with shades in the current material offer,

as well as a wall fixture constructed in metal and leather. Other pieces include a luxurious table

lamp crafted of transparent handmade Murano glass, featuring a coaxial leather-covered wire,

in addition to Bottega Veneta’s first rechargeable light offering; a cordless lamp can be used

wireless and only needs to be charged periodically. Finally, there is a smaller version of the

existing floor lamp with linen cord shade. Sawhorse variations now include a proposal in oak,

adding a slightly rustic element to the polished piece. Also of note is the addition of a new

smaller size option, available for both new and existing materials. A new round coffee table,

with a substantial circular base that lies flush to the floor, made of oak. Three new occasional

tables have been added to Bottega Veneta’s family of delicate “floating” pieces. A large square

coffee table, a rectangular side table, and a square side table are seamless additions to the

collection. New to the bookcase offering is a low, minimalist two-level bookcase, constructed

in oak, and there is also a higher room divider. In the META seating line the dining chair

is now available in a version with arms. Existing styles of desks have been reworked to avail

new material alternatives, such as wood, and wood that is in-set with leather. A new high

stool is added to the camp foldable family, adding variation to the current offering. Rugs are

presented in a selection of new colors, and in a new material for the category, pashmina.

The silver flatware is available in a new brunito colored finish: Rhodium and ruthenium have

been combined to create a dark, antiqued effect over the sterling silver intrecciato-engraved

base. The Murano glass tabletop collection now highlights a subtle signature of the

brand, “butterfly seal”, in glass, that has been placed on water glasses and bottles. The glass

stemware is also available in a new hue that combines color for a smokier take on transparent:

ash fading into cigar. New materials introduced this year include a black marble with yellow

streaks from Tunisia (“Black & Gold”) and a light grey/beige marble from Turkey (“Mystic

Brown”), offering new options for table tops. New wood offerings include oak in four different

finishes (“Dark Oak,” “Uniform,” “Pergamena,” and “Ash”), as an alternative for a selection of

desks, tables and book shelves. Fabric upholstery options for the Tassello family now include 14

shades of cotton velvet and 12 shades of mohair velvet.
