Chital Bowl Large in Black Shagreen and Bronze-Patina Brass by Kifu Paris

$575per item

About

This listing is for the chital bowl in the large size as shown in the first 5 images. The chital bowls with their amorphous shape are both beautiful and functional as bowls or trays. Available in 4 other sizes and inlaid in different finishes including cream shagreen, black shagreen, blue shell, black shell and bronze-patina brass. The shell pieces are hand-selected before being inlaid creating a unique surface each time. The shagreen is hand-dyed by artisans. This piece is designed by Kifu Augousti, the daughter of Ria and Yiouri Augousti. The dimensions of these pieces are: L: 35.5 x 5.5 x 3 cm / 13.9 x 2.2 x 1.2" The other sizes are: XS: 19.5 x 11 x 3 cm / 7.7 x 4.3 x 1.2" S: 25 x 13 x 3 cm / 9.8 x 5.1 x 1.2" M: 29.5 x 15 x 3 cm / 11.6 x 5.9 x 1.2" All Kifu Paris pieces are handmade by artisans, ultimately making each piece unique. Custom color/sizing available on request. Wipe clean with soft dry cloth. Although inspired by her parents, her collection of Home Accessories and Furniture is a distinct identity of its own. Kifu uses handmade techniques of elaborate inlay patterns of shagreen, shells, semi-precious stones, materials she experienced as a child growing up in her parent’s studio, but interpreted in a younger quirkier way reflecting her youth. From her "jewelry inspired knobs" on decorative boxes, gold bar boxes and an extravagant inlay pattern mix of shagreen and shell inspired by galactic constellations, as seen on her enormous round mirror, is refreshing to see. Kifu embodies whimsical elements throughout her collection and is not afraid to be daring and unexpected in her approach to design. All shagreen-covered items should be kept out of direct sunlight, color variants may occur on the stingray and other exotic finishes, but this showcases the Parisian label's commitment to creating authentic luxurious products using natural components.

About The Maker

R&Y Augousti was founded in 1989 by husband-wife duo Ria & Yiouri Augousti. Their artistic backgrounds brought them together as innovators in their field by reviving the artisanal techniques of shagreen and other exotic materials that were predominant in the Art Deco period of the 1930s. Through their mix of vintage and contemporary design their furniture and home accessories brand were met with worldwide praise. From a debut collection for the luxurious Hotel Crillon in Paris, to exclusive collections for luxury stores like Barneys New York & Bergdorf Goodman, they finally opened their flagship store on the famous Rue Du Bac in 7th arrondissement of Paris, France. From this they began to work closely with worldwide famous interior designers, architects and celebrities to create custom pieces for their homes and projects all within keeping to the Augousti universe. Although shagreen is their signature DNA, R&Y Augousti are known as pioneers of pattern mixes of exotic materials of shagreen, shell, parchment, eel-skin, semi-precious stones, snakeskins and metal. Their stunning patterns are identifiable by their worldwide clientele. Continuing and honoring the heritage of Augousti, their daughter recently opened a showroom in New York called KIFU PARIS, that carries the R&Y Augousti collection, her fiancée’s sculptural candle collection- Patrick Coard Paris-, and her own furniture and home accessories.
