Zaha Hadid Launches Volun Dining Pavillion at Design Miami http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/events-2/zaha-hadid-launches-volun-dining-pavillion-design-miami/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/events-2/zaha-hadid-launches-volun-dining-pavillion-design-miami/#comments Thu, 03 Dec 2015 17:26:49 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=3033 The Volu Dining Pavilion designed by Zaha Hadid is the first in a series of limited edition pre-crafted pavilions and homes launches at Design Miami 2015. Conceived by design and real estate developer Robbie Antonio, the revolution project unites more than 30 of the world’s preeminent architects, artists and designers to create a series of technologically advanced yet cost-efficient living spaces.

Named ‘Volu’, the architect’s contribution to the collection is a contemporary dining pavilion. The structure presents a bold silhouette, forming a typical fusion of design, lightweight engineering and precision fabrication. Containing bespoke furniture, the design continues a rational, geometric production by embedding the tectonics of manufacture within the form itself.

Complex and expressive forms were developed through the bending of flat sheet materials.

Defined by sophisticated digital processes, the pavilion has been developed in such a way that its components are, at most, singly curved. Such innovations were computer programmed to integrate fabrication constraints into the design, while enabling engineering feedback in an iterative delivery process. Consequently, this allows for comprehensive design development of complex and expressive forms through the bending of flat sheet materials.

Boca do Lobo in Auction at Christie’s http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/boca-do-lobo-news/boca-do-lobo-in-auction-at-christies/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/boca-do-lobo-news/boca-do-lobo-in-auction-at-christies/#comments Fri, 14 Aug 2015 14:31:43 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=1833 Christie’s needs no introduction. The world’s largest Auction House had an £8.4 billion turnover in 2014 and had already sold several Andy Warhold’s and CY Twombly’s works of art. Now, the Portuguese luxury brand Boca do Lobo is proud to announce the auctioning of the first edition of Symphony Sideboard, through Christie’s, on the 10th of September in South Kensington, London. The Symphony will be auctioned in the prestigious auction house’s exclusive “Out of Ordinary” category.

The first Symphony model has been part of an American interior designer collection, with a special preference for European art and culture. As an art connoisseur, she found in Boca do Lobo the quality and creativity she pursues in design, falling immediately in love with the Symphony’s distinct design aesthetic at first sight.

Symphony turned out to be one of the most emblematic Boca do Lobo pieces. Throughout the design and prototyping process, the designers carried out extensive research, visiting and studying several Portuguese churches and their pianos. The result is an elegant sideboard made with polished gilt-brass tubes inspired in female body shapes and violins, with three pairs of doors opening to reveal an exotic rosewood interior and three original glass shelves, on ebonized base.Boca-do-Lobo-Symphony-Sideboard  Boca do Lobo in Auction at Christie's Boca do Lobo Symphony Sideboard

This dichotomy art / design is noticeable in the brand’s creations. The aim is to arouse emotions, go beyond the functional aspect, so that customers may have authentic works of art in their homes. Because, as Marco Costa, the brand manager, explains, no one can remain indifferent to Boca do Lobo’s pieces.symphony-sideboard-boca-do-lobo-04  Boca do Lobo in Auction at Christie's symphony sideboard boca do lobo 04

In February of 2015, one exemplary  of the Symphony sideboard was featured in the Fifty Shades of Grey Hollywood blockbuster, with a place on set in Christian Grey’s apartment. The film included seven other pieces from Boca do Lobo’s collections, embracing the main character’s personality and taste.
