    It's nicely made about on par in workmanship with the most famous Danish manufactures. I personally favor the work of the Danish manufacturers. The public seems to offer fashion companies an excess of goodwill when they step out of their market that other manufacturers have had to earn inside their niche.

    Bottega Veneta has a nice home line.

    They also did a pop up shop during Salone a couple years back.

    I think it is awesome. It is intelligent and clever, is super interesting in its design and detail and when folded up could not possibly be more sensitive to its environment.

    The Bottega Venetta stuff, on the other hand, is freaking horrifying.

    It's also a somewhat underused form of log construction.

    This is the interior. For extra awesome.

    Agreed. Looks like a dorm room.

    I like some of it.

    The only fashion brand I can think of that has moved successfully into interior design is Missoni and to some degree Armani (I like their new hotel in Dubai).

    Most seem to do better with curiosities than furniture.

    The fact that they make everything look like their iconic purses, even to the printing on the bowls means that they should all be destroyed.
