Celebrating 3 years of Portuguese design

The Santos Design District (or SDD) is the epicentre of design in Portugal. From the most creative schools in the country to well appointed contemporary shops, this neighbourhood features the elite of the design both international and Portuguese. A stroll among the streets of this area will bring you up to speed with the latest and the trendiest tendencies in Europe and it is not unheard of to see the likes of Stefano Gabbana and company shopping around. Established by some of the most important design retailers in the country, the SDD association was founded in December 2005, and quickly gained the support of the local authorities and strategic partners to transform the area into the Portuguese destination for everything related to design. As one of the most respected contemporary design stores in the country, “Paris-Sete” is a reference in the area, representing some of the worlds best brands like Vitra, B&B Italia, USM and Flos.

It is my pleasure to announce that for the celebration of the 3rd anniversary of SDD, “Paris-Sete” will host an exhibition of Vitra and TemaHome designs. In association with Filipe Alarcão, we have designed a custom line of products to be featured together with Vitra at Paris-Sete and the 6th of December we would be delighted to have you for the premiere early evening cocktail. Once again, our commitment to the excellence of Portuguese design is second only to our drive to do better every day.
