Luxury is a multi-layered and multi-faceted term. In its most basic form, luxury refers to the excess of comfort, pleasure or splendour. It is an experience or good that is sought not out of necessity, but out of a desire for pleasure, status and aesthetic satisfaction.

Historically, luxury was often associated with the aristocracy and the wealthy who could afford to own extravagant items or live a lavish lifestyle. Nowadays, however, the concept of luxury has become democratised and is accessible in many different forms. From designer clothes and high-end cars to gourmet experiences and exotic travel destinations, luxury can be both tangible and intangible and means something completely different to each person.

In some cases, the consumption of luxury goods can also be seen as a form of self-reward or personal expression, sometimes luxury conveys a sense of belonging to a certain social class or is a symbol of success and achievement. Luxury is a reflection of personal values, cultural norms and the individual pursuit of happiness and satisfaction. It is a dynamic and constantly evolving aspect of human life that provokes both fascination and ongoing debate For those who are fascinated by the emotions and myths surrounding luxury, we present three exciting teNeues Coffee Table Books. Discover the diversity of the concept of luxury and be inspired.

Book "Schullin - Tradition Reinvented"

The exquisite luxury jeweller Schullin from Vienna shows us a special kind of luxury. He is known worldwide for his unique pieces of fine art jewellery from his in-house manufactory.  His customers include famous personalities such as Elton John, Christine Kaufmann and Barbra Streisand.

Each piece of jewellery is often based on a gemstone, which becomes the central element of the creation. The carefully curated coffee table book "Schullin - Tradition Reinvented" showcases the most beautiful, creative and sought-after pieces from his collections, which are always handcrafted and are certainly among the highest quality jewellery that goldsmiths can offer. Daring geometric shapes characterise Schullin's style, and the clarity and brilliance of his jewellery pieces in terms of shape, material and colour are astonishing.

Author Vivienne Becker has created the first comprehensive coffee table book on the outstanding work of Herbert Schullin and presents a tribute to the astonishing work of the jewellery designer, who has been at the avant-garde of his top-class craft for almost half a century. It not only shows the most important pieces of jewellery, but also takes its readers behind the scenes and reveals the creative process of the Schullin jewellery workshop.
