"the most exclusive cabinets"

12 June, 2013

Crochet

Every once in a while Portugal runs across architecture, art, or even a gourmet meal that makes us step back in awe and wonder. Well, this has happened again. This time, in discovering the beautifully designed and meticulously handcrafted furniture piece of Boca do Lobo.

The Boca do Lobo concept is not that old. The goal was simple:  to become the best in furniture design and production. Just four short years, many magazine spreads and multiple design awards later, Boca do Lobo has quickly become known as the “jeweler” of furniture design.

The mood of the moment dictates fantasy and heritage. As its name denotes, this sensational piece was inspired by the traditional craft of crochet, a process of creating fabric that consists of pulling loops of yarn through other loops.

The method of crocheting was reinterpreted in this piece through the forging of 60kg of classic brass pulls by a local jeweler resulting in a mesh, which adorns the sinuous silhouette of the piece.

The solid wood frame consists of seven drawers finished with a darkened gold leaf that ensures a mystery and an elegance, which contrasts with the cover with 60 kg of vibrant jewel, toned purple of the brass handles. This “crocheting” effect was reinterpreted through the forging of 60kg of classic brass pulls.

At Boca do Lobo, we like to say expect the unexpected.  Each piece carries the artisans’ own passion and emotion..  When a piece like Crochet is set in a home, and surround it by a new way of life, the piece takes on its own unique identity, combining original inspiration with the pride of ownership.

One reason our designs are so distinct and sohpisticated is the interesting mix of traditional manufacturing techniques with contemporary technology methods.

Crochet, a masterstroke of overindulgence, prevents the eye from settling. Glittery swaths of dark blue brass layered over the entire gold leaf surface make for a chest that we can imagine in Liberace’s living room.
