Oitoemponto

There aren't many things I like more than discovering the work of a new (to me) designer or firm. Which probably says more about me than I should comment on....anyway, getting back to what I was saying...it's exciting to see new work that inspires you and every now and then you see something that takes your breath away. Well that's what happened when I discovered the portfolio of the designers Artur Miranda & Jacques Bec of Portugal based firm Oitoemponto. Miranda, the founding partner, hails from a fashion background, and that is quite evident when you look at his work and marvel at his choice of colours, textures and rich detailing. The flair exhibited in their work is varied, which to me makes looking at their work so exciting. These are just a few of my favorites from their portfolio, there are many more on their website - which is a visual treat unto itself. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

Beautiful. Really like the images with the color way of soft blues.

I was already imagining myself drinking something at the ultra-stylish bar at the hotel they were designing here in Lisbon when I read they were off the project. Well, worse for their ex-client. I´ve already had the oportunity to see their work in showhouses and visit the showroom and their interiors are simply amazing. Elegant, refined, cosmopolitan, informed. Actually, just like themselves... Glad you found them.

Amazing style and breadth--love their points of color in otherwise neutral spaces. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful spaces. They do a fantastic use of colour. All the rooms have a the right touch.
My very favourite one is the living room with a yellow coffee table, a blue chaise-long and dark red armchairs... plus white, beige and brown... and a purple detail... it sounds confusing but beautiful to look at.
