The Peak Start of Day 2 at the Luxury Design & Craftsmanship Summit – It was a great start of Day 2 of the Luxury Design & Craftsmanship Summit in Gondomar, Oporto.

What followed this Showcase was the 2nd Panel of the Event: Design as a Driving Force of Local Craftsmanship. The panel focus on the evolution of design and interior design, which started to be as branches of architecture, an industry that was always understood as the major art. And if the interior design segment was considered a component of architecture, the design of clothing, furniture, jewelry and other common artifacts were also left mostly to tradition or artisans specializing in handmade products.

The panel debated the evolution of the design industry and how the design cultured impacted the craftsmanship. The truth is that the idea of designers as artisans has become more common since the access to manufacturers is scarce, contributing to the emergence of the Designer-Maker. This has brought transparency to the whole design process to pay tribute to the ancient techniques and craftsmanship, breaking way for new design trends that elevate the luxury design world. This has also led to the revamp of the interior design industry that conquered the right to be highlighted as a genuine industry!

Miss Confalonieri and Miss Merciari took the stage first to present their collaborative project: DoppiaFirma. This project brings together innovative designers and excellent artisans to create a unique collection of original works. Each of the objects carries two signatures – doppia firma, in Italian – as each is the outcome of the collaboration between a designer and a uniquely skilled craftsperson.
