Lisbon Gallery presents “Lizbon in Zurich” in partnership with the Brand New World Salon.

This exhibition features some of the most important figures of Portuguese and international contemporary architecture and design scene such as Amanda Levete, Bruno MM, Claudia Moreira Salles, Eneida Tavares, Fernando Brízio, Geckeler Michels, Jasper Morrison, Jorge Carreira, Joschua Brunn, Manuel Amaral Netto, Michael Anastassiades, Miguel Vieira Baptista, Naoto Fukasawa and Vítor Agostinho.

“Lizbon in Zurich” presents pieces that were mainly created through projects commissioned by experimentadesign: pieces integrating the latest “First Stone” programme (2016 – 2017), the “Metamorphosis” project presented at the EXD’13 Biennale or even the project “Efeito D” for the EXD’09 Biennale. The exhibition shows also pieces of independent projects created by designers constituting the pool of Lisbon Gallery Design & Architecture.

Most of the selected works were produced in Portugal, using national raw materials, like the stone or the cork. The preference over natural and organic materials or with a certain weight and history, projects in itself an identifying characteristic of the Lisbon Gallery: its investment in the area of sustainability and innovation.

By having its pieces positioned once again in a worldwide context, the Lisbon Gallery gets a step closer to the international approach it has been claiming, as a way to disseminate its content and to promote the design mostly made in Portugal.
