Maison et Objet’s The Talks are one of the most important elements of this trade show. An initiative that promotes the educational side of design and the exchange of cultural experiences within the industry, it’s no wonder everyone is gathered to see it. Yesterday, there was a very special conference at The Talks – Portugal: El Dorado Archi, Design and Craft – and we would like to share it with you.
Brought to you by the Covet Foundation, that celebrates and honors the craftsmanship of those who create soulful pieces with their hands, this conference was packed with design professionals and enthusiasts. A small step for the Foundation, a giant leap for design.
Joana Astolfi, Jacques Bec, Artur Miranda and Amândio Pereira were the speakers that guided us in this compelling voyage through the constellations of Portuguese arts and crafts, with Guy-Claude Agboton as moderator. It was a magnificent tribute to all makers for their wisdom, storytelling and history with beautiful creations through ancient techniques and raw materials.
The goal of this conference was to inspire and to elevate design and craftsmanship, converging in unforgettable moments of cultural sharing. Definitely one of the highlights of 2019 so far, we hope to repeat this experience in the near future. Thank you all for the support.
