Rolls-Royce is bespoke. Every once in a while though, the purveyors of the most luxurious cars in the world sees the need to remind us of that.
This time, they did it through the Rolls-Royce Phantom “Iridescent Opulence” which was unveiled in Abu Dhabi and craftsmanship that went into the “Gallery” of the car once again cements Rolls-Royce’s position in the world of bespoke motor cars.
The “Gallery” in our laymen’s words, is the space on the dashboard that’s made of glass, ahead of the front passenger. The “Gallery” is assembled in a cleanroom at the Rolls-Royce factory and has been used as a stage to showcase various different artworks.
If you’ve seen the Illuminated Fascia, the Wraith Eagle VIII, or even this crazy custom work, you’d know what we’re talking about. This time around, the artwork displayed is called Iridescent Opulence by Swiss-based design house Nature Squared.
It’s made up of feathers; real feathers and although Rolls-Royce did not reveal its origins, they did say that extensive research was carried out to identify a sustainable species of bird with rich dense feathers.
Over 3,000 tail feathers were used for this incredible artwork as they were meticulously positioned according to the colour tone of the feathers. Subsequently, they’re hand-sewn onto an open pore fabric. To complement this, even the surrounds of the clock were finished in pearls.
Is there anything they can’t/won’t do?
