Born in England, Alexander Lamont, founder of this eponymous brand, is truly passionate about decorative arts. Spellbound by the charms of Thai craftsmanship, he founded his brand in 2000 in Bangkok to produce high-quality decorative items with precious materials for clients from around the world. The ‘Alexander Lamont’ workshop employs over 100 artisans in workshops for shagreen, parchment, lacquer, eggshell, gesso, straw marquetry, gold leaf and bronze finishing. With the design studio located above the workshops, Alexander has daily contact with the artisans, and the designs emerge from an ongoing dialogue between designer and artisan in the exploration and innovation of materials.
