Maison Et Objet Talks: “Portugal, Eldorado Archi, Design And Craft?”

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 design with incredible conferences, and this year was quite inspiring, where topics from French identity to Chinese and Portuguese design were discussed.

When several European designers moved to Portugal, the media asked them why. Two answers come back; the existence of craftsmanship skills and a certain state of mind with the human at the centre. Portugal’s commitment to elevating design and craftsmanship has been truly impressive.

Deeply connected with the Portuguese legacy of fine craftsmanship, Amândio Pereira further emphasised on the significance of using luxury and natural materials in Portuguese productions, such as marble, cork and world.  Filigree was one of the main techniques highlighted at 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 mirror that pay homage to the past and artistic value of Portugal and its craftsmen.

Joana Astolfi always creates a project taking 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 projects are often translated into balanced spaces where neutrality, warm lighting and exquisite materials come together to create the one essence of the interior.

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