View Slideshow

Common Sense, the fourth international presentation organized by experimentadesign, in partnership with Assimagra, is an exhibition that invited product designers to create products out of Portuguese stone. The exhibition brought together a handful of contemporary designers from around the world and the result is 11 pieces that are designed for everyday use in a multitude of scenarios in modern times, each out of stone. The designers taking part in the exhibition are Claudia Moreira Salles (Brazil), Campana Brothers (Brazil), Fernando Brízio (Portugal), Miguel Vieira Baptista (Portugal), Jasper Morrison (United Kingdom), Michael Anastassiades (Cyprus), and Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec (France).

From Guta Moura Guedes, curator of the project:

The 11 pieces presented demonstrate a strong emphasis on creativity and the ability to innovate, as well as the creation of different proposals from the invited designers. It is also interesting to see how the Brazilian designers decided to add materials from their country to the Portuguese stone, offering a new dimension to the project as a whole.
