Just arrived in Greece and are staying in our friends home in the Cyclades. Heaven and feeling right at home. Jean & Olivier two of our best friends from Paris have a wonderful home here( more about that later) . It’s so strange when you return to a place that feels a world away back home, it’s as though you never left on your return. Loving it.
Casa do Conto (House of Tales in Portuguese) a concept hotel in Cedofeita, Porto, has had a rocky start. The charming XIX Century Oporto House was lovingly restored by Pedra Liquida Architects, after which a fire virtually destroyed the building just days before its reopening. A new building was built on the site with the memory of the old structure in mind. The architects thought of the new skin as a type of ‘fossil’ of the historic. The project references the ornate nature of its predecessor with abstract textures and texts applied to concrete surfaces.
The same people behind innovative Portuguese furniture brand Boca do Lobo also want to illuminate your life. They have spun off a company dedicated to the design of unique and delightful lighting fixtures. In fact, delightful is an apt name to describe their product…because Delightfull is the name of this design endeavor.
Similar to the philosophy behind the Boca do Lobo furniture line, designers at Delightfull grab design elements from times past and fuse them with modern techniques and concepts. The result is a product that is unique in form and practical in function.
