With heads turned towards Asia, it is often easy to forget that Europe still has strong production capabilities – with Portugal as one of the main protagonists. By bringing together a selection of objects from multiple Portuguese manufacturers, this exhibition aims to tell the story of contemporary Portuguese industrial design. By selecting only mass-produced objects, these sometimes seemingly anonymous or ordinary creations will gain a new voice as a vitrine for industry but first and foremost prompt a dialogue between the audience and their industrial heritage.
