Amigos of Portugal Confidential know that we love cool design. And (although we shouldn’t be) we are constantly surprised with all of the creativity and innovation that comes out of Portugal.
Most recently, we learned about Mood. This Portuguese company creates lighting that can easily be mistaken for sculpture installations at a contemporary art gallery. If you’ve been to the Lake Resort (Vilamoura), the Vine Hotel (Madeira) or Altis hotels in Lisbon, you’ve probably seen Mood lighting. Mood can also be found in Café Blanc Courrèges (Paris), Sushi Café (Lisbon) and La Gardena de Pablo (Madrid). We had to find out more…
Mood is a Porto Slavo-based company founded by former architects Rita Muralha and Raul Santos. They, along with designer Filipa Maia, are the creative minds producing “lighting objects for public and private spaces.”
Mood strives to create products that stand out in a very competitive industry. They do this by designing pieces with sculptural character, magnitude of scale, a passionate relationship for the crafting process, and unique and diverse materials. Ultimately, they hope their pieces personalize spaces and elicit emotions.
Through Mood Sales Manager Gustavo Caixeiro we learned that the newest piece in the Mood portfolio is the “Paco” suspension lamp. The most popular product is “Klaus” in brass.
Prices for Mood products range from €100 to €4450. For more information, visit the Mood website.
