A few days ago, Design Build Ideas brought to light a marvelous design event that will be taking place in a couple of weeks in Oporto, the Luxury Design and Craftsmanship Summit 2018.

Now, our blog will reinforce the ideals of this event – mainly to elevate design and craftsmanship as well as celebrate design with enthusiasts of this art – by showing you what type of arts will be featured and who will be the main speakers.
It wouldn’t be a strong and amazing Luxury Design & Craftsmanship Summit if it didn’t present showcases of several arts of craftsmanship, including leaf gilding, filigree, azulejo, embroidery, arraoilos, bilros, and many other ancient art forms and techniques. From 20-21 June, there will several live showcases enhanced by the expertise of amazing artisans and craftsmen who will show you how the work is done and how one can create spectacular pieces of fashion, jewelry and furniture.
As previously mentioned, the summit will have an incredible line-up of prestigious speakers that have been in this industry for quite some time. Let’s see who is going share their knowledge and points of view at this extraordinary summit:
