Founder of Solloshi Design, Richard Solloshi was involved in architecture and interior design for 20 years, having more than 100 successful projects under his belt. In the last 10 years his passion brought him to the bicycle industry and channelled his visionary ideas into a next generation e-bike. He was the chief designer of several electric bicycle projects and during this time he gained extensive knowledge in the field of metal craft, especially working with 7075 aluminium alloy and of course titanium. Working with these high-end materials inspired him to create a new range of products and Solloshi Design was born.
After four years of development and prototyping Richard has entered the market with his hallmarked products under his own name. The journey started with cigar accessories designed for – but not exclusively - the finest gentlemen who appreciate the luxury touch only a precision crafted item can provide.
Solloshi revisits and reinterprets everyday objects, transforming them into true masterpieces through meticulous designing and with the application of cutting-edge manufacturing technologies. His mission is to redefine the idea of practical luxury through advanced manufacturing technologies, precision engineering and to pour his passion into these luxurious objects.
Solloshi is dedicated to the art of titanium. This high-tech material requires special skills in design and unique manufacturing methods. Despite the fact that this level of precision and design requires countless hours of engineering, almost all of his creations are limited editions to preserve their unique nature. The choice of raw materials and manufacturing technology (CNC milling form single blocks of titanium) designates the potential target market without question.
With his luxury cigar accessories, he aims at setting a new standard for cigar connoisseurs. He believes that an exotic cigar deserves no less than the best accessory which preserves its subtle aromas and compliments the quality standard of a Cohiba Behike. Similarly to the cigar accessories line, other Solloshi accessories – such as the card holder, nautical bracelet, money clip, belt, etc. - stand as the embodiment of uncompromising quality and timeless design.
