We will begin with the Michelangelo Foundation For Creativity And Craftsmanship, an international non-profit entity that celebrates and preserves master craftsmanship and strengthens its connection to the world of design. They’re a valuable addition since they will tell us about their plans to assure the preservation of craftsmanship across the world.
Next, we have the Portuguese Luxury and Watchmaking Association, a private company that represents approximately 60% of the jewelry production in the North of Portugal. It associates approximately 400 companies and encompasses goldsmiths, jewelers, watchmakers and other associated fields.
Now we have two heavyweights in what comes to the Portuguese design luxury. Vista Alegre and Topázio, known worldwide, are stellar additions to a summit that promises to enlight everyone who’s coming. Vista Alegre is one of the oldest porcelain manufacturers in Europe and it’s also one of the most popular ones. The same happens with Topázio but in the jewelry industry.
Fashion will also be represented in the Luxury Design & Craftsmanship Summit with Storytailors. João Branco and Luis Sanchez are the iconic leaders and creators of a fashion studio that follows the principles of craftsmanship. They’re are becoming bigger and bigger because of their high innovation and quality standards. Don’t miss them!
Last but not the least, we have Boca do Lobo. Luxury furniture is where this brand undoubtedly fits and exclusive design is what they’re known for. Handcrafted in Portugal, Boca do Lobo’s amazing pieces are an emotional experience for everyone. The perfect blend of design, craftsmanship and art.
