London Exhibition Asks What Is Luxury?

London Exhibition Asks What Is Luxury?

Posted in Laser Cutting by Zap! Creatives on Aug 28th, 2015

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London currently has on display, until the 27th September 2015, an exhibition that asks ‘What Is Luxury?’ People define luxury in a plethora of ways; It could mean to you an extravagant yet fleeting holiday in an exotic location, bespoke laser cutting services that enable you to create almost anything, or it could be a more abstract form of luxury, such as the desire for more free time. We discuss what luxury is to different people and give you an insight into our expert laser cutting services!

What Is Luxury To You?

Sir Richard Branson, founder of the multinational Virgin Group, which comprises more than 400 companies, said about luxury, “I think everything comes back to people. Luxury is really friendly people offering really delightful service, who don’t take themselves too seriously, who are willing to smile and joke with you and avoid the ‘three bags full’ thing that some companies do”.

We would have to agree that exceptional customer service is something that is invaluable, and here at Zap! Creatives we pride ourselves on offering each and every customer who’s interested in designing their own work a smooth and enjoyable experience. You don’t have to worry about a thing, as we’re with you every (easy) step of the way! Even if your design concept is unachievable (it very rarely is), we’ll tell you so straight off the bat, and offer suggestions as to what we can achieve that’s similar!

At the London exhibition, you’ll find an array of shiny objects and symbols of status collected over the centuries, from a gleaming silver howdah (a ceremonial carriage seat on an elephant) to a 24-carat leaf pebble and 18th century Rococo Portuguese jewel-encrusted crown. There’s no lack of eye-boggling stuff to marvel at, but what’s perhaps more interesting, is the exhibition’s take on what luxury may represent in the future. Could it be a vending machine stocked not with chocolate bars, but DNA samples as exhibited? We’re not sure, but we’d choose chocolate every time.

Many would say exclusivity, choice and freedom are forms of luxury. The freedom to design something entirely exclusive, perhaps? Or could it be that a wealth of facilities, services and amenities, that add that extra level of comfort and service, is what luxury means to you? We’d say that it’s the feeling that you’re experiencing something special. We’d like to think our laser cutting services can be a part of that experience – from the moment you have your creative idea, through to creating your design on paper, and finally seeing it in tangible form when it’s delivered to you! What do you think?
