According to Polo, the Brazilian designer contacted Di Caprio right soon after this event, and they decided to rework the cabinet together so that it would better suit the gallery’s aesthetic.

“We decided to develop the bar cabinet as there are not many beautiful bar cabinets in the design market. We shared many drawings and ideas and finally we adjusted the size and decided the colors.” – Polo told Dezeen.

“Geometric shapes and combinations of colors of bracelets, necklaces and wedding jewels have inspired Leonardo Di Caprio. The result is a unique cabinet, which translates such geometric shapes into contemporary language by using the marquetry technique.” – said Polo.
