Bombay, Alivar’s precious ‘casket’ 07.09.2017
An indispensable tool for long journeys, over time the trunk has surpassed its simple function as a robust and capacious travelling case. Today, however, it has been given a new lease of life by Alivar, becoming a genuine item of interior décor devised for the bedroom, a unique object with a strong scenic impact that brings to mind charming atmospheres and memories from the past. Guarding personal items and everyday belongings, Bombay is the new trunk in the Home Project collection designed by Giuseppe Bavuso, where everything is neat and tidy, safely tucked away inside drawers, lined up in the side doors or sorted into the dedicated compartments.
A small private world consisting of accessories to be stored and memories to be preserved, which includes a large make-up mirror, watch and jewellery trays, storage shelves and various hooks to tidy away your belts and ties, as well as a pull-out shelf that can turn into a stylish desk to take notes or write your travel journal. Bombay is available in painted ash-wood or Italian walnut, whereas leather upholstery envelops the external and internal frame entirely, along with its drawers, shelves and storage compartments. The fastening clips are, on the other hand, made of satin-finish nickel. Bombay is a precious casket, painstakingly devised down to the smallest detail, to conceal secrets and surprises.
