Laying its focus on creativity and design, the Portugal Pavilion has come up with a ‘Home and Design’ theme month at the Expo 2020 Dubai that will commence from next month.
Bringing the best of Portuguese furniture, design and decorative objects, the month will feature a daily live showcase of ancestral arts, with Portuguese artisans working on pieces in the pavilion’s amphitheatre.
So far, two Portuguese designers – Alda Tomás, designer at Vista Alegre, and Artur Soares, interior designer, and founder of Designer’s Mint Studio have been in the spotlight.
Talking about the ‘Home and Design’ theme month, Joaquim Moreira de Lemos, Portugal’s Ambassador to the UAE said, “It is important to show in this part of the world what we do, our know-how, and how we can distinguish ourselves. Indeed, know-how and quality are characteristics of the national products that the wood and furniture sector represent well.”
