When the finest craftsmanship and the best of contemporary design hold hands, breathtaking art pieces like the Once Upon a Time bar cabinet are born. Brought to life from the merging of the iconic Pixel cabinet by Boca do Lobo and the delicate hand-painted porcelain by the renowned Vista Alegre, the exquisite bar cabinet Limited Edition with an exclusive design, truly seems to come from a dream or a fairytale.
A collectable and utterly stunning bar cabinet design limited to eight pieces that celebrate the beginning of Vista Alegre’s path in the art furniture field. Each work of art can be customized with the future collector’s name.
Inspired by the oriental vibe, there’s nothing more authentic in Asian art than porcelain. Once Upon a Time is a cabinet crafted with precious floral and colourful details, a garden full of Paeonia flowers, where two mythic Chinese birds live. These sacred birds, known as Chinese phoenixes, represent the masculine and the feminine side of a soul and are painted in shades of blue, pink, yellow and green.
Inside, this contemporary art modern furniture piece is coated with blue suede and mirror. A remarkable masterpiece is fully hand-painted and it took 500 hours of hard work by the most talented master artisans. Unlike most contemporary design whose only innovation is a modern twist on a dated idea, the Pixel Bar Cabinet does exactly the opposite, using a variety of traditional production techniques to craft an avant-garde furniture piece that’s elegant, joyful and a perfect match for the digital age.
Yet this time a new story has been written by master artisans who love new challenges and never cease to improve. That’s where Vista Alegre’s extremely detailed hand-painted porcelain comes in and certainly elevates the one of a kind piece.
From Portugal to the world, these two brands celebrate Portuguese design at the highest level, creating this craftsmanship masterpiece with a unique design.
