LUXARI, for the first time, will exhibit seventeen limited edition pieces from its 2015 home decor and art objects collections March 19 through March 26 at Baselworld 2015 in Basel, Switzerland.
Handcrafted using SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS®, LUXARI limited edition home decor and art objects are beautiful accents to homes and offices. Boutique owners see LUXARI pieces as the perfect complement to thoughtfully curated watch and jewellery collections in their stores.
LUXARI creates magnificent limited edition hand-crafted crystal sculptures and home decor made with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS®. Each masterpiece is the embodiment of uncompromising quality and exceptional craftsmanship, blending high artistic sensibility with a timeless opulence. Resident artists of LUXARI hand-set thousands of individual crystals to create powerful and majestic art objects to enhance any home, office, or collection.
LUXARI’s Founder and Head Designer, Daniel Jacob, envisioned LUXARI after several years of procuring crystal for his personal collection and helping other collectors obtain pieces. LUXARI was born after a two-year process of designing and perfecting the brand’s first works of art. The painstaking attention to detail has produced crystal sculptures that are not just beautiful but also unlike anything available in the world.
LUXARI launched in February 2014 with an initial collection of three pieces. INDONESIA, the pink panther set in 15,520 Light Rose crystals, captures the quiet prowling of the mysterious and elusive Southeast Asian Panther. TANZANIA showcases the powerful and charismatic yet gentle African elephant in the colour of imagination, purple. TANZANIA is hand set in 41,950 crystals.
The large Buddha, TIAN TAN, is modelled after the world’s most visited and second largest statue located on Lantau Island outside of Hong Kong. TIAN TAN is set with 96,340 crystals in nine different colours. LUXARI collections grew in 2014 with the addition of MADRID a bold red bull, LANTAU BUDDHA HEADS in three colours and set on jade pedestals, and the introduction of the ASPEN GOLD and MIAMI DECO geometric vases, all in limited editions and ranging from over 11,000 to nearly 59,000 crystals each.
In January 2015, LUXARI introduced 7 new limited edition pieces at Maison&Objet Paris: SHAANXI and SICHUAN, playful baby and mother pandas; MAYAN and AZTEC, skulls reminiscent of pre-Columbian art; VOLGA and VLAGA, beautifully paired swans; and the exquisitely detailed HONG KONG dragon symbolizing strength and luck, handset in over 48,000 crystals in 19 hues.
