Boca do Lobo work with a wide range of luxurious materials, many of which are combined in a unique way, often resulting in one of a kind pieces and finishes.
Balancing contrasting materials, textures and colours is key to achieve a unique piece. Curiously, the same rules often apply to interior design and architecture. The following series of images features of selection of pieces with warmer and darker tones, in a variety of materials and textures that Boca do Lobo specialize in:
The Piccadilly sideboard recurs to the use of alternating wood veneers, are often complimented by gold leaf surfaces and lacquer finishes. With the metallic leave’s, it is possible to add character and a touch of luxury to the piece, which is then mellowed by the clean and monochromatic nature of the lacquered areas.
The Pixel cabinet above resorts to the use of different veneers which are spread throughout the piece’s 1088 triangles, creating a unique mosaic of visual textures which don’t go unnoticed. The Pixel’s exterior is given full visual effect thanks to it’s polished brass base and aged mirror interior.
Above, the Ceramic Eden side table is finished with several light lacquer coats, which are then varnished for a high gloss effect. Curiously, these pieces gain interesting colour and visual texture from their baking process, as the glass is heated and cooled to solidify into it’s final shape. It’s surface is inspired by tree’s and flaura, and their organic texture. The dichotomy created between the material and original texture make it stand out, and appealing both to the eye and touch.
