Playhouse Modular Showcase Cabinet by Matteo Cibic

About the Item

Playhouse Modular Showcase Cabinet by Matteo Cibic is a modular cabinet that can be used singularly or be grouped as customized cabinets. The modules may be with or without doors. India's handicrafts are as multifarious as its cultures, and as rich as its history. The art of bone and Horn inlay is omnipresent here. Artisans from the Northern region of Sarai Tarin, to Bengal in the East, and Trivandrum in the South, have imbibed the ancient technique from Himalayan tribes, and have made their own mark along the way. The intricately crafted combs, vases, toys, and other objets d'art have long been a connoisseur's delight, and a means of livelihood for millions. When the founders of Scarlet Splendour and designer Matteo Cibic went on tour, in search of inspiration for their first collection, they were captivated by the exquisite bone marquetry. They decided to make a contemporary version of the playfully geometric designs, which would be accepted across the world. Cibic then developed a resin compound, and the company carried out trials with the material until they found the right mix. The resin would replicate ivory inlay, on a base of plywood, ultimately smoothened and lacquered to have no visible or tactile end. Each piece of the Vanilla Noir collection would then be made in India, by local craftsmen using locally sourced materials and pigments. The aim was to combine Indian workmanship and Western aesthetic in such a way that each piece appears timeless, and with multiple roots. In the unique decorative imprints one would recognize Indian styles, and also unexpected drifts to Italian design. The company's founders wanted to proudly showcase the Fine Art and making capabilities of their native India, and give the craftsmen due recognition. They have successfully paid homage to their heritage by elevating indigenous art and taking it to global design platforms. Care: Wipe gently with dry soft cloth. Liquid spillage must be wiped without delay. Please note: Each piece in the Vanilla Noir collection exalts the handmade, the painstakingly crafted, the authentic. A piece may have slight variations and tiny imperfections but these are the marks of an artisan, a testament to the individuality of each work of art. It is our belief that these variations infuse our objects d'art which desire and we assert our right to make the necessary qualitative changes. Prices do not include VAT. VAT may be applied depending on the ship-to location.
