During the Prohibition era, Desmond Dare opened a luxuriously dubious establishment called the Pink Flamingo. Here ladies of great wealth could easily mingle with people of all classes. Before long, detective Vera decided to clamp down on this misdemeanour. She slipped in under guise, only to be enticed by Ravishing Raul and his six-packs. Very smartly he led her to the 88 Secrets. But when she opened Bar Rosa, instead of bottles of exotic pink bubbly, much to everyone’s disbelief out stepped a flamboyance of pink flamingos in stilettos.
Nika Zupanc, a strikingly renowned Slovenian designer, never shies away from redefining the status quo of design, moving far beyond affirming boundaries. Her consistent yet ambiguous attitude to femininity and romanticism reflects in this collection. Inspired by the eighty-eight constellations of the stars, each piece from the 88 Secrets collection tells a story, almost bashfully, as we do with secrets.
Nika Zupanc playfully paints with a palate of quaint colours and gold, both rose and oro, manifesting the magic of diamonds in the sky, for your very own space, introducing new values like modesty and strength through delicately designed furniture and optical illusion rugs, made in India, with much love. A kind of modernist rigor underwrites this collection, communicating the things, that can not be spoken, with a distinct poetic quality. The journey to build this collection to perfection has been relentless. From bending metal on wood, to crafting the perfect diamantine tabletops, the founders of Scarlet Splendour are never satiated with mediocrity, persistently pushing their own limits.
The 88 Secrets Collection promises comfort, outside your comfort zone, brining the simplicity of Slovenian art and beauty of nature, almost soul churning. Welcome to a world of timelessness and infinite possibilities, leaving you feeling nothing lesser than a star, yourself.
Always from the 88 Secrets Collection:
Nika Zupanc is today a globally recognized name that expresses at its best the femine approach to design. She depicts her imaginary world with a touch of theater and “film noir” creating iconic and emotional objects which constantly reinterpret modern culture and contemporary design. The international press followed closely Nika’s products defining them as “techno chic” (Business week), “punk elegant” (Elle USA), and “larger than life” (Clear magazine), and as a designer, she has been pointed out as “the real star” (The wall street journal). Product and interior designer Nika Zupanc became a globally recognized name with the launch of the Lolita lamp, her first object to be produced by Moooi. Nika Zupanc works as an independent designer who is constantly involved in fresh projects that grow out of distinctive interpretations of modern culture, contemporary design and available technological options. Her products are part of the range of distinguished design companies such as Moooi, Sé, Moroso and Nodus and she works with prestigious clients on specially assigned projects as was her installation Room of one’s own for Dior. Her praised limited edition collections and installations are exhibited around the world, sometimes as part of high-end collaborations like the one with Rossana Orlandi. Along the way, Nika Zupanc continuously produces objects under her own brand Nika Zupanc and is involved in various interior projects. Elsewhere, she has continued to build her portfolio to rising acclaim and in the last few years, Zupanc has become one of the most closely-watched designers at Milan Design Week: not just for her stand-alone products but also for her installations, including Love Me More, curated byRossana Orlandi.
Scarlet Splendour was born in 2014 from the love for Design of the brothers Ashish Bajoria and Suman Kanodia and they dream of becoming the first design editors in India. Ashish Bajoria and Suman Kanodia founded Scarlet Splendor in 2014. The brothers grew up in Calcutta, India with a deep sense of appreciation for aesthetics. They combined their mutual passion for design to form Scarlet Splendor, in order to integrate their maximalist sensibility and possibly become the first design editors in India. They set out to create cutting-edge furniture, lighting, and carpets on the edge of classic and modern, whimsical and serious, functional, and dramatic. Scarlet Splendor has partnered with international stores, news agencies, artists, and designers to transform and bring local craftsmanship globally. The company heralds a blend of cultures and transcends geographical boundaries to achieve the extraordinary in the world of design. Scarlet Splendor was launched at Spazio Rossana Orlandi during Milan Design Week 2015. Their debut collections were born from the genius of Matteo Cibic of Vicenza, Italy. It won the Elle Decor International Design Award 2017 in the Young Talent category. In addition to Matteo Cibic's projects, the Scarlet Splendor portfolio contains a series of works by Dario Contessotto, Mirco Colussi, and Nika Zupanc, who has been called "the real star" by the Wall Street Journal. From Milan 2015 and subsequent exhibitions, Scarlet Splendor has increased its collaborations with internationally renowned designers and the latest in the London Artifact Design Studio. In 2018 Scarlet Splendour participated in the Salone del Mobile. Milan, a milestone not only in the young history of the company but also in the history of the global presence of the Indian design fraternity. Scarlet Splendor combines her exquisite artistry with an immaculate design to evoke decadence and eternity. We invite you to experience its avant-garde aesthetic and share our passion for luxury. In 2020, after meeting the Designer Danilo Cascella, they decided together to start a prestigious partnership and propose their precious pure design collections on the Danilo Cascella Premium Store.
