Marco highlights the “skillful manual work by talented craftsmen, combined with a contemporary design which challenges the noblest materials and the wisest hand of Portugal. Timelessness persists, as well as Emotional Design and the ability of creating pieces which tell a story of their own.”
The Boca do Lobo Private Collection is composed of luxurious home safes, tabletop objects, jewelry cases watch winders and cigar humidors. It is designed for demanding clients who possess fascinating secrets and the desire to preserve them at any cost from the outside world and the tricks of time.
Each Private Collection’s piece has its own story and inspiration.
The first that has been released is the Baroon luxury safe. Steampunk was identified by IBM as a hot trend for 2014 and Boca do Lobo Desig Studio loved the idea of exploring such an exquisite concept that has been inspiring the seven arts since its literary origins with “20.000 Leagues Under the Sea”.
The Millionaire safe was designed with a nod to the Gold Rush of 1849, when gold was found causing back robberies to be at an all-time high. Safe technology was not as advanced as it is now, and it was not unusual for robbers to break open the safe, rather than pick the lock. The design of the Millionaire Safe seems to wink at this fact with well placed divots on its exterior giving the safe the illusion of having been “broken” into.
Launched in Baseworld 2014, alongside with renoenwd brands like Breilting, Chopard, Rolex, Piaget or Cartier, other pieces stand out, like the Knox luxury safe: a timeless and unique safe like no other. Boca do Lobo‘s design studio worked very hard to create an exquisite home safe that is not only fantastic to look at, but also truly safe. It was inspired by The US army base Fort Knox: the place where most of the gold of the USA Government is held. Security is essential, and like the army base, Knox safe is impenetrable. It can only be opened by inserting the right code in the center of a luxurious brass casted handle inspired by the movie Goldfinger.
One of the pieces that stood out was also the Diamond Luxury Safe. Diamond is known as the hardest material on earth, so this luxury safe place to keep the world’s finest treasures. In accordance with the current hyper-luxury trend, and inspired by one of Boca do Lobo’s most iconic pieces of furniture art, Diamond Safe is perfect to take good care of precious watches, due to the watch winders included. Other exclusive items like cigars, jewels or even bottle of your finest whisky will also find in this luxury home safe their special place.
