With 33 years as Asia’s barometer for the global home, fashion and craft trade, Manila FAME, The Design and Lifestyle Event, opens this 15-18 October 2015 with a breathtaking collection from German designer Detlef Klatt that celebrates the good life as interpreted through the expert hands of 21 Philippine exporters in collaboration with the country’s most talented artisans and craftsmen. The entire collection will be curated and presented in Manila Gusto Gallery: In Pursuit of Pleasure, a special event feature located at the ground floor of the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.

Inspired by the ethos of “gusto” which translates into hearty or keen enjoyment, Manila Gusto Gallery: In Pursuit of Pleasure is an exuberant collection of dinnerware, home accents, and holiday décor, complemented by select artisanal food products. The collection promises a neo-baroque experience in living with its decorative embellishments and luxurious attention to details. It is a bold expression of a life well-lived as translated in a setting in black and white, and infused with touches of gold.

Manila Gusto Gallery: In Pursuit of Pleasure fuses neo-baroque elements with modern application. In photo are samples of products and designs that will comprise the Detlef Klatt’s product design and development collection.

The Manila Gusto Gallery is a combined concept store and coffee shop. It speaks of harmony and significant connections despite differences. It encourages consumers to create a symphony of synergies among contrasting elements. The bar serves as a venue to mingle and share heart-to-heart conversations with friends over a cup of coffee; the gallery presents functional and decorative items that embody all things that make life more pleasurable; and the concept store encourages consumers to take home pieces that reflect their heart’s desires, and remind them of the grandeur of life and its decadences.

Product designs, especially developed by Detlef Klatt for the companies participating in the special setting, vary in style to highlight each company’s capability and strength. The products may diverge into extreme, mellow, sophisticated, natural among others, depending on the resources and identity of the company-participant. Despite the different product categories, the classical elements in the setting bind them for cohesion, according to Klatt.

Detlef Klatt discusses his designs with Philippine Treasures, Inc. Vice President Ma. Elena Gomez one of the 21 local companies who will be manufacturing products for Manila Gusto Gallery: In Pursuit of Pleasure.

Klatt also speaks of the longevity and high appraisal for products sporting a classical theme. “Products with classical looks are seen as timeless, and people appreciate them as high-value,” Klatt explains.  He also notes that there is a big demand for these products, but there is an inadequacy in quality suppliers worldwide. Klatt sees this as an opportunity for the Philippine export industry.

Klatt also remarks that a classical theme will be easily understood by Filipino craftsmen because of the Spanish influence embedded in the Philippine culture. “It is normal to Filipinos because you see it your churches, in the curves and carved details in your furniture,” he says.

The 21 local companies sharing their collection for the Manila Gusto Gallery: In Pursuit of Pleasure are Asia Ceramics, Basket and Weaves, Bon-Ace, Chanalli, Chrysara, CSM, Dekokraft, Femeen Crafts, Gyrma Import Export, J.E.R. Shellcraft, Joami International Trading, Manila Precious Moments, MCCA, Marykel, Navidad Crafts Export Corporation, Obra Nicolas, P&B Valises, Peter and Paul, and Philippines Treasures, Prado, and Sarilinlikha Novelties / Abaca Art Atelier of Manila.

The Manila Gusto Gallery: In Pursuit of Pleasure is an enticement, a visual and tactile invitation to be bold, to live a life full of passion, to seize life’s precious moments, and to create significant connections.
