LAMONT/02 represents a playful yet seriously beautiful small collection of vessels and light elements.
When Alexander Lamont set out to design the latest collection of accessories he found diverse inspiration in the forms of nature; the curving form of a ripe pumpkin. Leaves tightly wrapped in anticipation of their unfolding. The richly textured skin of tropical fruit.
The LAMONT/02 collection revolves around the generous use of many of the LAMONT signature materials. Cast bronze with rich warm patina is sculpted into forms that are voluptuous and organic. Shagreen covers undulating carved lids of boxes that are joined with ebony details. Glass is hand-blown into beautiful droplet vessels raised on stands. Hand-applied leaf sends waves of pure gold light from within openwork vessels.
LAMONT/02 represents a playful yet seriously beautiful small collection of vessels and light elements. Many of the pieces were hand-sculpted in the LAMONT workshops before being caste and finished. Others took the natural forms from leaves; the varied leaves from teak trees, crumpled leaves from lotus ponds, and giant banana leaves with light scalloped texture.
LAMONT is well known for its demanding quality and uncompromising use of the worlds great materials. Few places in the world today have mastered such a palette of old world craft traditions. Like an atelier from the Belle Epoque Paris of the nineteen twenties, the crafts of shagreen and parchment inlay, marquetry, lacquer work , chasing and patination of metals and gilding are all performed in clean and well organized workshop on the leafy outskirts of Bangkok.
Given the wonderful designs, rarity of the materials used and quality of the workmanship it is no surprise to find many affcionado’s of this small and vibrant brand out in the design world. LAMONT supplies to interior designers and projects around the world. The difficulty of production means that there is always a queue for their products and the 100 or so craftsmen are kept busy with plenty of overtime meeting the shipping schedules of its customers.
With so many designers today working exclusively in high volume production or modern materials, LAMONT items, made in small runs in traditional materials and with such design originality, could very well be the collectables of the future. Hurry while stocks last!
