Maison Et Objet Talks: “Portugal, Eldorado Archi, Design And Craft?” – It’s with much sadness that we say goodbye to one of the best Paris events of all! Every year Maison Et Objet brings the best of designwith incredible conferences, and this year was quite inspiring, where topics from French identity to Chinese and Portuguese design were discussed.
This conference counted with the knowledge of interior architects from Oitoemponto, Artur Mirandaand Jacques Bec as well as Joana Astolfi designer fromAstolfi Studio and Amândio Pereira, founder of Covet Foundation.
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.
Deeply connected with the Portuguese legacy of fine craftsmanship, Amândio Pereirafurther emphasised on the significance of using luxuryand natural materials in Portuguese productions, such as marble, cork and world. Filigreewas one of the main techniques highlightedat the conference. Boca do Lobo, one of the brand’s from Pereira’s Covet Group, has crafted this art form to new heights by producing pieces, such as the Filigree mirrorthat pay homage to the past and artistic value of Portugaland its craftsmen.
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.
