Portuguese Design focuses mainly on luxury, they stand for high quality materials and craftsmanship, mixing impressive color pallets and extravagant shapes. Portuguese are known for being very creative , dynamic and that is definitely noticed in their interior design brands. What we particularly enjoy about Portuguese Design is that you can’t really expect it. They get inspired easily and tend to create the most out of the box furniture. The brand Orikomifor example is inspired by Origami and uses paper to create stunning lighting designs…just amazing!
Maison et Objet Paris will gather the best of the best of Italian, Scandinavian, French, Portuguese Design and so much more! A true opportunity to get inspired, if you’re a professional designer, and find the most unique objects, if you’re a gatherer.
