The medusa as muse
Since Donatella Versace comes from Italian fashion royalty, perhaps it’s only fitting that the new Versace Home collaboration with the Haas Brothers features a “futuristic throne” that honors the queen of Versace style herself.
Designed by LA-based designers Simon and Nikolai Haas, the Donatella Chair combines honeycombed brass with luxurious black leather for a blend of Versace opulence and modern styling. As the star of the 12-piece capsule collection, the Donatella Chair is the subject of a behind-the-scenes video by Alexa Karolinski that beautifully demonstrates the craftsmanship involved in making a bespoke design. It’s a making-of clip that’s worth watching even if you will get a chance to see the collection first-hand when it’s on display at the Salone del Mobile 2013.
