Hong Kong-born designer Steve Leung has added another string to his bow with 'Nature's Jewel Box', a furniture collection produced in collaboration with luxury Italian furniture brand Visionnaire

At Salone del Mobile 2015, prolific internationally-reputed architect, interior and product designer Steve Leung unveiled his latest works: a series of furniture pieces produced in collaboration with Italian label Visionnaire, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.

Dubbed 'Nature's Jewel Box', elegant design and refined craftsmanship are the hallmarks of the collection: inspired by the wonders of the natural world, the collection absorbs various natural elements such as colours, materials, patterns and so on into the distinctive styles of both Leung and Visionnaire.

Achieving the optimal balance of aesthetics, comfort and functionality, one range is made of steel with a satinised bronze finish and doors with inserts in onyx or semi-precious stones. Invisible handles and basements in aluminium with black chrome finish can be seen in the suite vanity unit, for example, which is entirely plated in glossy ebony. Its velvet onyx interiors feature shelves and drawers in ebony, as well as a luminous make-up mirror.

The second range, dubbed 'furniture in the furniture', has a textured leather covering, animal patterns and metal treatments with a black shell effect. Legs are in black lacquer, while curved glass and mirrored doors are carved with Gothic patterns.

The opulence of the series is matched by the amazing inlaid tables, with tops in marble, onyx and semi-precious stones with design traced with subtle textures, beds and bedside tables shaped as natural elements, entirely covered with soft leather, and whole sofas and armchairs featuring inserts of semi-precious stones.
