Lotus Arts de Vivre, the iconic brand known for its bold Asian and animal themed creations made with opulent raw materials, was founded by Rolf and Helen von Bueren over 30 years ago.
The work borrows heavily from Asian culture and mythology and makes use of rare and auspicious materials like such as seeds, nuts, coconut shells, sting ray leather, ostrich and emu eggs, scarab wings, ebony and precious woods, sea shells, bamboo and traditional craft techniques: we go to India for gem-cutting, Indonesia for wood carving, Thailand for Niello work, Japan for Makie Lacquer and China for Cinnabar Lacquer. Our pieces are sold in over 15 countries, making it one of Asia's leading brands of luxury hand-crafted Jewellery, Home Décor and Accessories. Our statement pieces, adorned by members of high society, royalty and international serious collectors of luxury and unique art objects stretch from Palm Beach to New York, from London to Cannes, from Delhi to Dubai and from Beijing back to Bangkok and are sought after worldwide.
Now, the sons, Sri and Nicki von Bueren have taken the reins of the family business and continue to produce curiosities worth collecting and manage a secondary market with auction houses and online platforms.
Signature stores span across Thailand and Malaysia, and representatives based in Indonesia, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, India, Dubai, France, Istanbul, Russia, UK and USA, with exhibitions being held globally.
