For the first time, guests were able to step into the Bentley Home lifestyle, which debuted at the 12th edition of Art Basel Miami Beach. The collection reflects the elegant, prestigious and recognizable style of Bentley through a range of exquisite modern furniture.
The fine furnishings align perfectly with that of the venerable car company’s manufacturing practices. Both utilize best-in-class innovations and cutting-edge technical advances while adhering strictly to the principles of craftsmanship. The result yields heirloom pieces prized for high performance, decadent comfort and aesthetic prowess. The collection illustrated the Bentley lifestyle — a modern twist on the traditional élan of the British gentleman driver’s style — through the deft use of fine leathers, precious wood veneers and glinting metal.
In addition to the Bentley Home Collection, varieties of art were on full display throughout the 10,000 square foot showroom. Maria Pergay, a famed Parisian-based designer with select works exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was commissioned by Fendi and Fendi Casa to create an iconic collection, unforgettable products reinvented and produced in a limited edition, one of a kind pieces. This partnership highlighted shared values of mastery, savoir-faire, and beautiful craftsmanship, with respect and love for materials and making things by hand. Skillfully combining the fur and steel world, several of Pergay’s works were displayed at Luxury Living Fendi Casa including Bureau Louis XV, Torcheres Flammes, and Chaise Marguerite.
Italian artist, Fabio Pietrantonio, takes raw and carefully selected materials from uncontaminated, natural environments using wood, stones, sand, pigments, and metals, to recreate a sensation of cosmic harmony. With art displayed in metropolitan cities such as New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Madrid, Sao Paolo, and Moscow, Pietrantonio is edgy yet refined and exhibited a large scale aquarium installation as well as several paintings and sculptures.
