Lotus Arts de Vivre, an iconic brand known for its bold Asian and animal-themed creations crafted using opulent raw materials, was founded by Rolf and Helen von Bueren over 30 years ago. The brand's work borrows heavily from Asian culture and mythology and makes use of rare and auspicious materials, such as seeds, nuts, coconut shells, sting-ray leather, ostrich and emu eggs, scarab wings, ebony, precious woods, sea shells, bamboo and traditional craft techniques. Travelling to India for gem-cutting, Indonesia for wood carving, Thailand for Niello work, Japan for Makie Lacquer, and China for Cinnabar Lacquer, the globalised pieces are truly one of a kind. Sold in over 15 countries, Lotus Arts de Vivre is one Asia's leading luxury hand-crafted jewellery, home decor and accessories brands. Its statement pieces – adorned by members of high society, royalty and international collectors of luxury and unique art objects – stretch from Palm Beach to New York, London to Cannes, Delhi to Dubai and Beijing back to Bangkok. Today, the founders' sons, Sri and Nicki von Bueren, have taken the reins of the family business and continue to produce curiosities worth collecting, managing a secondary market with auction houses and online platforms.
