Turquoise, pyrite, amber, agates… Nothing is too rare to adorn the creations of the brand of the "meubles bijoux". Created in the 70s in Hong Kong, Kam Tin published very few pieces before stopping its production. It took a turquoise chest to cross paths with Philippe Rapin for the magic to work again. The Quai Voltaire's art dealer developed a passion for his 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, met great interest among collectors. In October 2012, a turquoise floating cabinet is sold more than 200 000 US dollars at Christie's.
New creations will follow: brass and copper cloud tables, small side tables bronze decorated with turquoise inlay or tiger eye, pyrite enfilades , turquoise bedside or masterful brass chandelier. Those exceptional single or limited edition, are made by artisans/goldsmiths in Philippe Rapin's workshop in Germany.
Today, Kam Tin is illustrated 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).
