London Craft Week returns to the capital for its fifth edition from 8-12 May 2019. This year the design fair brings together over 240 established and emerging makers, designers, luxury brands and galleries from around the world.
As you know, Boca do Lobo is known worldwide because of its craftsmanship techniques and modern design. Due to that, the Portuguese Embassy in London is celebrating the brand’s history by highlighting one of its most iconic pieces, the Once Upon a Time Pixel Cabinet.
Once Upon a Time… is born from a partnership between Vista Alegre and Boca do Lobo.
Boca do Lobo’s cabinet Pixel – named by AD Choice as one of the 500 best pieces of furniture in the world – was the starting point of this new chapter in the history of Vista Alegre.
This piece, limited edition only eight copies, is composed by 1090 small triangles of hand-painted porcelain, and an exclusive bar service, also limited to eight copies, produced in crystal of superior quality and with platinum elements. The pieces are fully blown, cut, engraved and painted by hand. Each copy of Once Upon a Time… will also be customized with the name of the collector who purchased it.
The exhibition of luxury design will take place since the 8th to the 10th of May, and of the 9th there will be a drinks reception, demonstration and open house, where master artisans will demonstrate their craft during a cocktail reception.
In London is also the COVET London Showroom: A private show flat in the heart of the world’s design capital, their wish is to offer you an intimate design experience attached to an authentic scenario. There, you have professionals ready to inspire all the visitors with a private tour over amazing stories behind the pieces.
