Playing with your senses: the new Illusion by Buben & Zörweg
The primary concern among collectors of beautiful and precious objects is unequivocally the security of their possessions, which usually lists as a high priority when customising a Buben & Zörweg masterpiece.
This concern is entirely justified when one considers that most Buben & Zörweg safes are designed to house complicated, contemporary and rare vintage watches, gold bars, antique firearms, artworks and other fine collectables. It therefore comes as no surprise that the technical specifications taken into account by the specialised German manufacturer when building its safes are fully in accordance with these requirements. From bullet-proof, fire-resistant, explosion-proof two-way mirror glass, GPS tracking devices and biometrics sensors to laser curtains, these are just some state of the art inbuilt specificities currently available on many Buben & Zörweg masterpieces. But sometimes safety concerns also demand manageable sizes, ease of use and stealth. The new Illusion is Buben & Zörweg´s answer to many of these concerns.
The new Illusion
Presented to a global audience during the last Baselworld show in Switzerland, the new Buben & Zörweg Illusion revealed itself as a practical alternative to the conventional full specification safe, bringing forward a fascinatingly simple security solution to the office, changing room or bedroom. Unlocked exclusively by way of a biometric fingerprint sensor or a transponder chip, the 40 kg heavy steel-bodied safe surprised everybody by raising its contents elegantly in a soft, upward motion. Its upscale model, the Grande Illusion, showcases all the possibilities of this creative concept by almost tripling the storage capacity of the smaller Illusion. The Grande Illusion elevates its contents out of a shaped column masterfully covered in fine leather and Alcantara, crowned by an optional Fine Timepiece with a Buben & Zörweg signature movement. A sculpture-like creation that draws inspiration directly from the famous Clock Tower in Dubai.
