Alex Lamont’s workshop on the northern outskirts of Bangkok has set itself apart for more than a decade, creating luxury furniture, lighting and objets made with time-honored techniques—both Asian and European—and precious materials such as bronze, gold leaf and shagreen. In February the company became known as Alexander Lamont, a move that seeks to “refresh and re-imagine the next ten years,” according to its namesake. Drawing inspiration from sources as varied as Art Deco, a moment in a film and the bones of fish and birds, pieces in the new collection, like his earlier work, feel both contemporary and antique, perhaps because Lamont’s intention “is to make things that will be considered beautiful now and that will be worthy of looking after”.
Pieces include a bronze-topped, eight-leg shagreen credenza that weighs well more than 30 kilograms; bronze mirrors and tables reminiscent of Monet’s water lilies; and small, lacquered boxes with parchment interiors. Alexander Lamont pieces are available at four locations in Bangkok, including the Four Seasons and the Sukhothai hotels.
