LEGACY

Boca do Lobo was born from heritage and innovation; with the strong belief that the success and growth have been determined by the commitment to design, produce and carry luxury furniture and unique experiences.

 

“Design is not merely an accurate creative process, moreover is the art of inspiring and evoking unique emotions to the world.”

CRAFTSMANSHIP

 

Craftsmanship is about making something that is so unique it can only be made one time. The skill that someone uses when they make beautiful things with their hands.  This is the real luxury.

“I put my heart and soul in everything I do, and Diamond was the most challenging piece. It was one of the most joyful days when I finished a piece like that, no one can even imagine.”

Mr Cosme is the most prominent name regarding the woodworking team. Wood carving is one of the oldest arts of humankind, and to make sculpturing ornaments in a wooden object creates undeniable exceptional details.

LEAF GILDING

 

From the land of iconic arts, the leaf gilding is one of the most treasurable and richest crafts techniques. The application of a thin layer of gold, silver or copper, has been a process of ornamental decoration used on different materials and surfaces. Architecture is also one of the creative fields that rely on leaf’s rich look on buildings and design components, evoking unique moments of rare opulence.

Boca do Lobo have always paid tribute to this ancient technique and different leaves can be unveiled in several pieces along the collection like the imposing Gold screen from the limited edition. Layer by layer, this is a time consuming and very detailed technique but at the end, the texture, depth, and richness are truly worthy.

 

AZULEJO

 

Portugal, the country of whimsical beaches, Porto wine, seafood, and also azulejos. Being one of the most representative art forms of the Portuguese culture, the hand-painted tiles reflect a tradition with hundreds of years, and it often portrays scenes from our history or its fabulous sights.

A very ornate yet refined element which inspired the Heritage series from Boca do Lobo, a collection that displays different layers, each one illustrating a different story. Among the remaining Portuguese artists of azulejo and a member of our team is Mr Araújo, a brilliant mind who is always looking to create antique things and historic panels yet in a forward-thinking way.  The challenge today has been to find new aesthetic concepts since the tile itself will be always the same.

When Boca do Lobo approach me for the Heritage project, I was thrilled. It’s a very beautiful piece, with all the tiles, glass details and the interior in gold leaf.

METALWORKING

 

Nowadays the metalworking can be truly artful to conceive a wide range of large-scale structures, assemblies, to the most delicate jewellery. Since early, Boca do Lobo has no restrained to use different processes and tools to shape new designs, by giving to our pieces rough yet powerful expression.

One of the processes we appreciated the most is the art of casting metal, where the metal is heated until molten into a chosen shape and size. It gave birth to outstanding pieces like Newton series or the iconic Eden series. This technique is one of the most used for making intricate forms that would be difficult to have from other methods, including the sand casting. Recently brand new Imperfectio seating collection is a curated example of cutting and hammered methods. The reward is to make every single piece as a unique piece of art, being impossible to have two equals. A real expression of exclusivity and high collectable craftsmanship outcome.

FILIGREE

 

Filigree is the most delicate technique used to work precious metals, usually of gold and silver. It is an age-old and detailed jewellery expression in which skilled artisans painstakingly solder tiny beads and twisted threads to create striking artistic motifs, suggesting often an exquisite and intricate lace-like pattern.

“It takes thousands of attempts to get right and the threads can be as thin as a hair. The way we bend the material will never be the same. It seems simple but it requires a lot of labour and technique and I think this is what true art is”, reveals Mr Rocha, one of the last filigree experts in Portugal. Boca do Lobo has been mastering the art turning it into upscale masterpieces with the filigree bugs sculptures.

 

“Doing such large filigree sculptures is really hard, and those are the ones we enjoy the most. When I started working with pieces as complex as the filigree bugs it was quite a challenge , we try and try and try until it is perfect, one has to go over the limit”

BEHIND THE SCENES

 

Usually described as the place where success works in silence

Capturing the details and the peculiarities of the materials, sometimes standing on the tables and other times laying forgotten or thrown away in a corner is one of the crucial steps of Boca do Lobo’s creative journey.
