Kam Tin

Turquoise, pyrite, amber, agates… Nothing is too rare to adorn the creations of the brand the "meubles bijoux." Created in the 1970s in Hong Kong, Kam Tin produced very few pieces before ceasing production. It took a turquoise chest to cross paths with Quai Voltaires art dealer Philippe Rapin for the magic to begin again. Rapin developed a passion for Kam Tin's treasures while traveling in Hong Kong and decided to buy the brand. His expertise in decorative art, his taste for the eclectic and contemporary style gave rise to new collections. The first pieces, turquoise or amber cabinets, were met with great interest among collectors. In October 2012, a turquoise floating cabinet was sold more than 200,000 US dollars at Christie's.
New creations followed: brass and copper cloud tables, small side tables bronze decorated with turquoise inlay or tiger eye, pyrite enfilades, turquoise bedside tables and a masterful brass chandelier. Those exceptional single or limited edition pieces are made by artisans/goldsmiths in Philippe Rapin's workshop in Germany.
Today, Kam Tin is presented in international fairs (Paris, London, Hong Kong, Beijing) and major auction houses (Christie's London and NY, HK Sotheby's, Bonhams London Arcurial and Piasa in Paris).
