luxury at a second glance.
italian designer aldo tura (1909 – 1963) is known for his equally idiosyncratic and glamorous surface finishes in lacquered goatskin.
a few years ago ‚modern magazine‘ wrote an interesting article about aldo tura and his work including the apt sentence: „tura clients clearly liked to have a good time. bars of various sizes and functionality, from delicate rolling carts to large tiered cabinets, seem to have been the studio’s main focus. they were complemented by related accessories: ice buckets, carafes, humidors, ashtrays, and cocktail shakers – all covered in lacquered goatskin.“
this time we don’t have a house bar but a small, beautifully shaped aldo tura table in the showroom, lacquered goatskin on the top/outside, mahogany veneer on the bottom. good vintage condition, shows signs of use.
