The new Bottega Veneta Home Collection, designed by Creative Director Tomas Maier, is presented during Salone del Mobile in Milan. While preserving its long-standing ideals of craftsmanship and a harmonious balance of texture, design and functionality, the collection features playful new finishes on iconic pieces and a brighter, more colorful palette.
“I wanted to show something very different from what I did two years ago, which was muted and graphic” says Maier. “I like to give new ideas of how my client could create a living space.” Maier also further develops his collaboration with Osanna Visconti di Modrone in new lighting pieces.
The Home Collection has organically evolved from Tomas Maier’s first design, a single bench he created alongside Bottega Veneta’s skilled artisans, in 2006. Since then, the house has developed and presented full collections of furniture and home accessories, many of which are made with esteemed manufacturers such as Murano artisans for glassware, Koenigliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin for porcelain and Poltrona Frau for seating.
In 2015, Bottega Veneta established a dedicated furniture Atelier in the Veneto region where the brand was founded. This year, the brand introduced a new retail home concept called The Apartment at the Maison store in New York. The Apartment offers the biggest selection of Bottega Veneta furniture and home accessories in the United States, all displayed in a residential setting, complete with a curated selection of books and artwork.
