CHAMPAGNE BAR TABLE
With four Grammys and a string of other music awards to his name, Lenny Kravitz realised in 2003 that he had another passion to fulfil: design. Thus, with the encouragement of the iconic designer Philippe Starck, Kravitz Design was born. Now Creative Director of Dom Pérignon, Kravitz has created a limited edition interiors collection for the Champagne house. It includes a luxurious coffee table crafted from black lacquer and brushed brass trims, which unfolds to reveal a built-in ice bucket and space for Champagne and glasses.
Regarded as one of the four greatest French trunkmakers, Au Départ was founded in 1834 at the advent of train travel and an era of pioneering exploration. Since then, their exquisitely crafted leather trunks have become synonymous with style and luxury travel. Au Départ’s creative line of trunks for ladies and gentleman includes everything from tea sets, jewellery and makeup cases and vertical storage wardrobes for shoes to Champagne trunks, wine dispensers, watch winding sets and Cognac and cigar cases, complete with humidor, glasses and ice bucket.
Established in 1923, Murano-based NasonMoretti set the benchmark for the Venetian ‘art of the table’ and its exceptional handblown glassware has graced the homes of some of the world’s most prestigious families. Having collaborated with fashion houses including Valentino, Bottega Venetta and Hermès, NasonMoretti has created its new Melting Pot collection with innovative designer Matteo Zorzenoni. The collection of handcrafted lamps pushes the limits of traditional Murano blown glass craftsmanship and mixes colour, shape and surface finishes to produce elegant and unique glass art lighting.
