Luxury Design and Craftsmanship Summit 2019 – Live Showcases
The Luxury Design and Craftsmanship Summit 2019 is almost here and this year we will present you with the best showcases of live craftsmanship work. In these showcases, the Masters artisans will show us their craft and how they work to make unique design luxury! With the second edition of LCDSummit getting closer, we have for you some of the amazing techniques that will be present in this event.
Arraiolos are an identity of a village in Alentejo, Portugal, and a genuine Portuguese textile piece. This technique of making rugs is all over the world and brings with it a part of the Portuguese story. The Arraiolos rugs are made by the embroidery, using the oblique cross stitch on a strong fabric base.
This year we will present you with the technique of metal casting, that represents the art of casting metals into a chosen shape and size. The all process of metal casting starts with melting metal into a liquid, put it in a mold with a cavity of shapes and removing the material after the final work gets solidified. After being solidified, the piece is broken out of the mold and the work is done. This technique is one of the most used for making intricate forms that would be difficult to have from other methods.
Azulejo is another amazing technique that will be present in the live showcases at the second edition of Luxury Design and Craftsmanship Summit 2019. Azulejo is the most representative art forms of the Portuguese culture and is used as a wall covering decoration, being linked to architectural use, covering a large surface area on both the inside and outside of buildings. Azulejo is usually clay or ceramic plate piece, generally with a square shape decorated with glazed colorful designs, and repeated hundreds to a few thousand times.
