Paolo Troilo is a great artist who paints with his fingers, but first of all he is a friend, a family member, and a Balthazar regular. He is passionate soul expressing his strength with extreme simplicity through incredible works that convey pure energy. True to his calling, Paolo has created an amazing mural – “The Missing Link” – a work of art that enriches the 10-metre wall at the entrance hall of Balthazar Downtown, a gift to us and to St. Moritz!
Balthazar hosts a selection of photographs by David Yarrow, a renowned Scottish artist with a worldwide fame for his fine-art photos of wildlife and landscapes.
DesignFurnishing by Baxter
The award-winner “Libelle” bookcase by Baxter is used as a bottle holder, a cradle of lifestyle ideas and objects that adds a magical touch to Balthazar.
Italian design is not about creating objects. It is about evoking emotions in the beholders, enticing them in a unique and far-reaching experience, like the masterly balance of flavour of an Italian recipe. This is the story of the best Italian designers, artists who transform leather in a second skin, wood in an extension of our bodies, creating furniture that fit like a glove and bear witness to passing of time while hinting at the future.
This is the story of a family, of two enlightened entrepreneurs like our friends Luigi and Paolo Bestetti; a story that cannot be appreciated without understanding the heritage of the typical Italian family company and its culture of craftsmanship. Luigi and Paolo’s is a young and dynamic company, established in 1990 on the sound foundation of a century-old entrepreneurial tradition in the heart of the Brianza design district. A land that has always produced excellent furniture that – once an exclusive luxury for the aristocracy and the rising bourgeoisie of Northern Italy – is today within the reach of all the lovers of beautiful objects. Baxter is an all-Italian story with an international flavour, a personal interpretation of the English taste taking the art of leather craftsmanship to the next step.
