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 misdemeanor. 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 colors and gold, both rose and gold, 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 building 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, bringing 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 ZUPANCNika Zupanc is today a globally recognized name that expresses at its best the feminine 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 by Rossana Orlandi.
