Led by Alexander Lamont, the Bangkok-based British decorative artist and designer has a longstanding passion in producing iconic designs taking inspiration from the decorative arts of both Europe and Japan. It is an East-meets-West sensation which imprints its commingled beauty on each and every one of his products – spanning furniture, decoration, accessories, and lighting.
Much like contemporary poetry, his work weaves together the beauty of ancient art and modern flair, resulting in masterpieces which reflect the vivacity and vibrancy of time and human crafts.
Having lived in Thailand since 2000, Alexander now owns over five shops around Bangkok city and one in Phuket. With the goal to bring an approachable aesthetic to the home, the brand is widely appreciated for its unique designs and concept, and is celebrated across various countries through Southeast Asia, in the US, and UK.
