This is a special presentation by Minimalux for the Salone del Mobile, 2011 in Milan. Against a backdrop of the famous design capital, Minimalux products are captured on film as they explore and enjoy familiar Milanese sights and experiences.

Minimalux is a London based design brand under the creative direction of the designer Mark Homes (a founder of Established & Sons). Minimalux made its debut in April 2009 with a carefully edited group of silver and gold-plated brass desk and table accessories that were notable for their luxurious minimalism — thus the name.
The new 2nd collection has the same vibe, but at more accessible prices. It produces modern collections of desk objects, table objects, ornaments and accessories.
At the core of its design ethos are the opposite elements of simplicity and splendor, combining to form a unique and enticing identity. This is seen in the premium materials and lustrous finishing of the small, stark and simple Minimalux products – each one a lasting and jubilant celebration of a pure and elemental form.
It is also evident in the stripped-down yet quality driven operating structure of the company – an approach that strives to be progressive, ethical and sensitive to our consumer tastes and concerns.
These characteristics are integral to Minimalux – guiding brand development and providing the inspiration for future collections.
Minimalux is supportive of local, non-exploitative, efficient and traditional manufacturing methods. It has assembled a highly skilled production infrastructure that is well equipped to provide the quality levels and care that Minimalux requires. This provides a trusted and reliable team of practitioners – offering invaluable knowledge of processes and materials and informing the design development and creation of future collections.
Production of the first two Minimalux collections is carried out in and around South East England and the Midlands. Expert local craftsmen and engineers in the regions have been key elements in their creation. Gilding, precious metal plating and electroforming in solid silver is executed by London based Gold and Silversmiths – Royal Warrant holders to HM Queen Elizabeth II.
