Moser & Linley glassware
Luxe Limited Edition Moser & Linley range is the toast of London Craft Week
With London Craft Week having dominated the social diaries of all those aesthetically minded in the capital, it’s no surprise that Belgravia’s finest furniture brand Linley hosted a series of champagne soaked events to celebrate the best of luxury craftsmanship in London and beyond. Exploring the importance of the five human senses when enjoying luxury products, on May 10, the heads of four high end brands took a room of VIP guests on a sensory journey through the process of luxury craftsmanship.
Explaining the importance of craftsmanship in the production of their own award winning products; Co-owner of St James’s chocolate brand Prestat Nick Crean, CEO of quintessentially British perfumers Penhaligon Lance Patterson, and founder of Belgravia’s boutique furniture brand Linley David Snowdon spoke about the cultivation of ‘sense’ in forging a unique customer experience.
Telling the audience how luxury craftsmanship should produce a strong sensory reaction in their customers, Nick Crean discussed the importance of taste for producing fine chocolate, Lance Patterson explored the role of smell in boutique perfume making, whilst David Snowdon emphasised the importance of touch as well as visuals when selecting high end furniture.
In the spirit of sensory engineering, the highlight of the day was an exclusive preview of the new limited edition collaboration between Czech glassmakers Moser and David Linley furniture. Sipping on champagne served in Moser’s trademark crystal flutes whilst the new collaboration was unveiled, guests could see and feel the difference luxury craftsmanship and artisanal talent makes in the luxury goods market.
Created to honour the principles of London Craft Week, namely a respect for the engineering and artisanal talent behind the production of luxury items, the limited edition collection includes two different styles of hand-blown Moser crystal vases encased in a handcrafted Linley wooden box. One particular highlight, the “putti with birds” set, is a lavishly designed vase inspired by the works of French artist François Boucher. Presented inside the Linley case that mirrors the design of the vase through a hand painted marquetry motif, the Moser & Linley range is a true example of the enduring power and beauty of high end artisanal craftsmanship.
Conceptualised by Moser’s own resident engravers with each individual piece taking months in the execution, there are only a limited number of hand designed pieces available. Signed by the engraver complete with certificates of origin, the limited edition Moser & Linley range is for those who value the art of luxury craftsmanship and intrinsic beauty of objet d’art. Although London Craft Week may be over, there is still time to explore the Moser & Linley range and make an investment that will last the test of time. Whatever item you choose, be sure it will remain the topic of conversation in many a fine drawing room.
