In the Studio with Bill Amberg

For our new HOME in Hong Kong, FINE+RARE has collaborated with one of the most respected names in British leather craft, Bill Amberg. An industry leader in bespoke leather products, interiors and furniture, his work can be found gracing British institutions including the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Royal Academy of Arts, Selfridges, Claridge’s Hotel and The Savoy, to name but a few…

Amberg is no stranger to the world of fine wine and spirits either, having designed beautiful limited-edition cases for the iconic Yamazaki 18 Year Old and 25 Year Old single malt whiskies, medicine bags for Aberlour Distillery and Grey Goose, as well as award-winning projects for Royal Salute.

We had the opportunity to visit the incredible Bill Amberg Studio last week – tucked away on London’s Lonsdale Road, a long-established hub of creativity and internationally recognised design talent. We stopped by to view the bespoke leather panelling that will greet all visitors at our soon-to-open luxury retail and private members’ space.

See a behind-the-scenes preview of the panelling in progress, before it begins the long journey to its new HOME in Hong Kong…
