When several European designersmoved to Portugal, the media asked them why. Two answers come back; the existence of craftsmanshipskills and a certain state of mind with the human at the centre. Portugal’scommitment to elevating designand craftsmanshiphas been truly impressive.

Joana Astolfialways creates a projecttaking into consideration a story, concepts with a narrative, that reflect not only the history of the place itself but also the people, creating the full experience. Her projectsare often translated into balanced spaces where neutrality, warm lighting and exquisite materials come together to create the one essence of the interior.

Moreover, Oitoempontoalso referred that when craftsmanshipit is concerned, it is all a question of information and proportion, whether we are talking about tastes, colours or styles. A constant throughout this conferencethat all entities involved agreed is that one simply cannot project one’s near future without reinterpreting the past at Maison & Objet 2019.
