    The Essence of Beautiful Living

    “Study Nature, love Nature, stay close to Nature. It will never fail you.”

    Frank Lloyd Wright

    One cannot create Nature but one can attempt to imitate a fraction of its beauty. The heart and soul of The Natura is to live in harmony with an idealized version of our environment.

    One of the principle inspirations is derived from Alvar Aalto’s Villa Mairea in Finland. Its unique ambience established by the wood grain timber walls, flooring and ceiling evokes a modern Scandinavian aesthetic that is calmly soothing and almost timeless. One is drawn more to living in the moment and less obsessed with material things, allowing us to initiate a closer connection with one’s body mind and soul, and also to better understand the spiritual side of our very own existence. Whether reading a novel whilst overlooking a deep green hill at one of the bay windows, or sipping a cup of chamomile tea under the chandeliers of crystal and gold at dining right next to a glass display called the “Crystal Garden”, these are the moments to appreciate the simple pleasures of life which are priceless.

    Colourful modern and abstract art also plays a big part at The Natura with inspirations coming from many modern masters.

    Yet, The Natura is far from living off the grid. It is totally connected to information and technology with no less than 3 LED TV displays boldly placed on the TV Ribbon Wall. The Screen is the interface between our realities (or soon to be Metaverse), so communications at any instant is of paramount significance.

    More colours with tactile sensations are provided by Italian Modern Furniture Icons like Cassina and Henge of Milan, with tailor-made coffee and dining tables inspired by ClassiCon and Tom Dixon respectively. As for materials of fixed furniture and others, nickel silver shimmers against amazon green marble and natural timber from Schotten & Hansen. Chandeliers at dining are created by Preciosa. Golden Butterfly coat hangers by Ghidini 1961 of Italy with lighting design and products are by Artemide.

    Other details include golden bathroom sanitary fixtures and accessories by Dornbracht with smart toilet by Neorest of Toto from Japan. Kitchen Design is by Kitench Kitchen.

    The Natura is natural yet functional, colourful and warm, calming and exquisitely beautiful. It provides a revolutionary and unique way of living for the 21st century and beyond.
