The third Design Mais, an exhibition focusing on Portuguese design, launches in London this week. Greenwich Village at Selfridges, Rabih Hage’s gallery space in King’s Cross, Thorsten Van Elten and Viaduct will showcase a variety of products ranging from ceramics, glass, furniture and lighting during November and December. The Selfridges component has a strong historical influence; Rabih Hage focuses on designs that unite traditional crafts with contemporary aesthetics; Van Elten takes a Minimalist approach; and Viaduct concentrates on furniture.
