The Luxury Design & Craftsmanship Summit was a huge success. Its main goal was to promote the ancient traditions of the artisans and how craftsmanship must be the biggest ally to design. Master Bedroom Ideas is here to show you some of the best moments on this design event.
Boca do Lobo is one of the brands created by this summit’s host, Amândio Pereira. Its CEO, Marco Costa, was one of the speakers on this event and made us realize how important craftsmanship is for Boca do Lobo as it is present on all of their products. Beautiful techniques are part of the brand’s history and were shown at this event such as the art of creating pieces with filigree, hand painting tiles, wood carving techniques, etc.
The Storytailors are a portuguese duo capable of marvellous things in the fashion and design field. Their names are João Branco and Luis Sanchez and they created this incredible business in 2001. They focused their business on unique clothing, different materials and brilliant mastery when it comes to their artisans.
Exclusive brand Vista Alegre is a pioneer when it comes to give the value the artisans deserve. This portuguese brand holds an history of 194 years and has developed a brilliant design mixing the old and the new, with a classical approach on a modern design. It works mainly on porcelain and crystal and presented some of their products and techniques on this design event.
Toni Grilo was also one of the speakers on this event and gave a moving speech about how you can begin with nothing and end up with a lot, if you are not afraid to make mistakes and take risks. He presented one of the brands with whom he works, Topazio, and specified the metal work techniques often used to complete Topazio’s products, once again paying an homage to the role artisans play on the contemporary design.
A lot of skills and techniques were featured on this incredible summit. We praise and value luxury design, however we must acknowledge the meticulous arts and crafts behind the pieces we use for our home decor and interior design. Traditional arts such as metal work, wood carving, glass fusion and some more specific like “Renda de Bilros” and “Azulejo” should be praised and admired so they won’t get lost somewhere in time.
