Bethan has captured the movement of the sails in a hand-drawn pattern and with the play of the light by matching the direction of the veneer to the curved sections of solid metal. The sweep of the Dhow pattern is meticulously crafted in Muscat by our master craftspeople from over 60 linear metres of solid brass, copper or nickel and paired with precision hand-made bespoke hinges.
The Dhow Cabinet is available as a two-door, three-door or four-door, as a 2x2 door and as a chest of three soft-close drawers. Cabinets include adjustable shelves, drawers and cutlery drawers, dependant on size and specifications. The collection also includes two coffee tables, one on four legs and one on a brass, nickel or copper block base.
The Shamsian collection is inspired by Bethan’s family heritage and her extensive travels throughout the Middle East. It references carefully observed details from the way the sunlight falls across the castellations of the fort at Nizwa to the billowing sails of traditional Omani boats.
The collection is characterised by intricate yet harmonious patterns that capture cultural stories in collaboration with local artisans in a way that resonates with both the people to whom those stories belong and audiences all over the world.
The collection is made in collaboration with master craftsman Mohammad Reza Shamsian and his Muscat-based workshop of highly skilled artisans using ancient techniques, such as 16th-century marquetry, combined with cutting-edge technology and the finest natural materials including marble, hand-stained maple and brass.
