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.

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.
