The Luxury Yachts Blog usually talks about aspects more related to the luxury lifestyle and yacht industries, however, we come across an extraordinary design event that has its main objective elevate design and craftsmanship, which we believe it an important matter to anyone involved in the industry. So, today, Luxury Yachts will disclose the Luxury Design and Craftsmanship Summit which will be taking place in Oporto, from 20-21 June. This stunning city is also known for its boats and cruises through the Douro River, so it’s definitely an opportunity not to be missed.
This gathering will unite some of the best creative minds, designers, makers and luxury brands in the industry to discuss what’s next in the luxury design world. This summit aims to start an open discussion on various topics, from what is design and craftsmanship to what happens when one combines the best design and the handcrafts, and countless other questions that will help create a better tomorrow.
The opening event will be at Pavilhão Multiusos de Gondomar, which was designed by Pritzker Winner, Architect Álvaro Siza Vieira. Gondomar is known for being devoted to craftsmanship, especially in the production of filigree, among other ancient art forms and techniques.
This particular event will present an outstanding line-up of renowned speakers, who tiresomely work every day to develop this cause, including the Michaelangelo Foundation, Fundação Ricardo Espírito Santo Silva, Luís Onofre, Vista Alegre, Topázio and Boca do Lobo, just to name a few.
This event is organized in association with the Thinkers & Makers Foundation, whose mission is to celebrate and honor craftsmanship and every single person who creates soulful pieces with their own hands. This event will act as “A unique new Summit dedicated to exploring the increasingly crucial nexus between luxury and craftsmanship as essential components to inject a new verve into the design world.” Below, you can find some of the debates and activities taking place as well as the topics that will be discussed at the summit.
