Pieces designed by Carl Auböck II for the Berluti Home & Office Objects collection. Simon Hasan’s vases are among the pieces.
Berluti Home & Office Objects collection includes the most memorable historic designs from every decade between the 1950s and 2000s.
Berluti’s new project represents over seven decades of design and more than 400 years of collective knowledge. Crowned the Berluti Home & Office Objects collection, the pieces combine the brand’s leather savoir-faire with that of silversmiths, carpenters and metalworkers—selected from an elite group of European makers. According to Berluti Creative Director Kris Van Assche, finding artisans with a rich tradition of craftsmanship served as the starting point for this high-end (and highly anticipated) partnership. Notable pieces from the collection include a magazine rack and letter opener from 1950 by Carl Auböck II finished in Berluti’s emblematic Venezia calf leather, a set of trays built entirely by hand in maple and ebony from 1979, and a set of five vases by Simon Hasan that were created using a 15th century crafts technique. And the colors are standouts too, with brightand bold options from Nespola Orange and Utopia Blue to Sukhna Sunset Purple and Amalta Yellow—and, naturally, Berluti’s signature Tobacco.
