This design magazine makes the tribute to all the manual arts that have been struggling not to disappear through the years. I wanted, by publishing their revelations, the importance and brand’s legacy to this cultural richness.
They want it to be entertaining and of informative character, at times contrasted, but above all useful. Inside you’ll find a mixture of descriptions, pictures behind the scenes, features, and testimonies, as well as a wide range of inspirations.
Boca do Lobo was born naturally, without any strain, without any obligation, was born as a need and desire at the same time. As a need to represent what no one until the beginning of 2005 had come to do: to duly represent Portugal’s talents and crafts and as a desire to create a brand that would endure and flourish through the years into something quite different from the rest.
Amândio Pereira and Ricardo Magalhães, the two design students who absorbed experience and inspiration from the capital of design and fashion, Milan, returned home with a clear objective- they would create a design a brand able to break the norms of conventional luxury and find a way to celebrate, the use of artisanal techniques by making a tribute to all Portuguese heritage and culture.
“The history of Boca does Lobo reborn repeatedly, marking each year a new inspiration, a new challenge, but with the same objective and passion. The restoration of the antique ar ts of manual work, honouring the ar t of hand-painted tiles, marquetry, joinery, upholstery and metalwork”
There is no secret recipe for success, much less for creativity. Everything is taught, gained, or improved through practice and experience. Our prime difference from all other creatures is the ability to learn feelings, memories, or histories. Nothing disappears, everything is rooted in the unconscious, to be displayed unexpectedly due course of the lifetime. This inherent ability of human nature, when “married” to a so-called creative mind, generates naturally the steps to the creative process. Precisely of the above-mentioned sensations, from the conjunction of the conscious and unconscious, from the co-living of the past and present, Boca do Lobo created the so-called “10 Creative Steps of the Brand”.
Designing for Boca do Lobo is every designer dream. It’s an inspiring way to create and tell unique stories. The complexity of detail, the strong features, the classic heritage and the audacity that every piece can take is mind-blowing, seams that there’s no limit, and to create pieces made to fill up a room… There’s no better recipe.
