When design inspires # 5. Boca de Lobo’s world of emotions


Emotions, emotions, emotions that’s one of the main conceptions of the design of the Portuguese brand Boca de Lobo. You can experience the delight, or remain in a state of shock, but you will not be indifferent looking at their work. If Japanese design is the pure minimalism, with a certain touch of irony, the Portuguese masters realise  their ideas as the bright expressive combinations of colors and textures. Sometimes it seems that the designers have not any limits, only  the scope of their own imagination. Any idea, even of ​​the most daring could be converted by manufacturers into completely tangible and functional object.



Fragments of the table of «Newton» series, created in different versions, with black lacquer brass spheres at the foot  and gold hemispheres as the top, which composed by slices stylized drawing of  wood texture  or the base consists of golden balls and veneer surfaces with high gloss varnish finishing and some gold plated spheres as the base.

The sideboard «Diamond emerald» is made from wood finished with a luxurious shade of translucent green emerald with high gloss varnish.


Monet, central table. Resorting to the use of contrasting design elements and materials, Boca do Lobo have achieved a beautifully balanced center table which comfortably sits in any contemporary setting.


The «Monochrome» is built from three seperate modules, and features a unique shape. It’s available in electric blue or purple lacquer finish, with a high gloss varnish coat.

I think that designers, artists of this company hardly could hear one of the most destructive  phrases for industrial design: «This is low-tech.» It  always sounds like a death sentence for the most brilliant ideas.  How many plans broke from these words! But the creators of the unique things of this brand we could  envy. Constant search for innovation allow them to implement all the daring projects that can come in the gifted and creative heads. The every thing is self-contained, bright and sets the tone for the entire space, determines its character.

Even the most prudish interior becomes audacious, playful, without losing the elegance and chic.
