Eduardo Afonso Dias at MUDE LISBON

Posted: Jul 09 2014


 

A recent highlight of our trip to Lisbon (amongst the many the city has to offer) was a visit to MUDE, Lisbon's Museum of Design and Fashion. The building itself used to be a bank but has been deconstructed, yet retains some old details, such as the gigantic central marble counter on the ground floor and wood lined offices upstairs from its previous incarnation that now act as gallery space. 

Not only was the building impressive, but equally was the discovery of the exibition of the work of Lisbon designer Eduardo Afonso Dias. It celebrates his 50 years of working in design that has seen him create cutlery for Ikea to copper teapots to chairs, and even buildings. The show has over 350 objects of his design on display and was a delight to discover the work of this prolific designer.
