It is impossible to forget the challenges every master artisan, plastic artist or designer that collaborated to make these artworks possible faced. Adapting ancient techniques generally used to create smaller decorative objects into furniture is not easy. Nevertheless, that’s why Culture is here for: to motivate experimentation and innovation.

Some of the most beautiful, exclusive and limited-edition art pieces to come out from Culture’s workshops were the hand-painted stools in oil and acrylic paint. The oil version was designed by Joaquim and handcrafted by Oficina Santa Barbara. The magic of it is all in the contrast between the black background and the colorful yet gentle and naturalistic flowers.

The hand-painted acrylic stool is more geometrical in its design and was conceived by the plastic artist Hugo Santos.

Thinking about the hours and hours of hard work, dedication and passion that were needed to bring to life these masterpieces, we can understand why the highest level of excellence and quality can only be achieved by the finest craftsmanship.
