Eclectic style dominates in Royal Selangor’s Autumn 2014 Collection

Monday, September 15, 2014


While paying my visit to Royal Selangor Visitor Centre last month, I was invited to have a glimpse over its latest Fall Collection 2014. Indeed, this collection has drawn my attention to and the whole concept was inspired from different styles and eras resulting in five elegant ranges for contemporary living.


Chateau
Inspired by the Renaissance, a time of artistic, scientific and financial growth from the 14th to 17th century, Chateau features patterns from classical columns, pilasters and other architectural motifs from the time period. The collection consists of a highball glass, decanters, whiskey tumbler, bottle coasters, champagne flutes, wine goblets and an ice bucket.


Circa
The Circa tableware collection is defined by the clean lines and durable functionality of the 1950s mid-century modern design, which originated from the American interpretation of the International Style and Bauhaus movements. Seamlessly combining Kulim wood and satin pewter accents, Circa comprises a spice mill, wine chiller, salad servers, bowls, bottle coaster and trays.


Miami
The mid-century modern aesthetic is once again highlighted in Miami, a range of retro chic candle stands. The collection features repeated curves which convey a sexy vibe, while bright pewter accents provide an interesting visual contrast. A hurricane lamp, tealight holder and candlesticks complete the Miami collection.


Hard Disk and Thumb Drive
Portable storage goes high-end in Royal Selangor’s collection of 16GB USB flash drives and 500GB external hard drives.  Pairing sleek design with fine pewter detailing, the range is available in three versions- the sunburst, parang and weave. The sunburst features a series of concentric circles, while parang is inspired by parallel diagonal lines found on batik fabric. The weave is derived from the signature mengkuang weave display at Royal Selangor. Both drives are compatible with most operating systems.


Zodiac
The twelve iconic animals of the Chinese zodiac take the spotlight in Royal Selangor’s collection of cufflinks and pendants. According to myths, they were selected from a race called by the Jade Emperor or Buddha and represent a specific year in a 12-year cycle. The intricate design of each animal takes its cue from Chinese paper cutting, a 1,500-year old art form listed on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List.  
Whether for work or play, this collection makes it easy to express one’s individuality.
