The Luxury Design & Craftsmanship Summit will be honouring both luxury design and Portuguese ancient crafts at an event in Gondomar, around 15km east from Porto, northern Portugal, this month, bringing together some of the country’s most influential figures in luxury design and craftsmanship.
Sponsored by the Covet Group , the event will take place on June 20 and 21, and will give the audience the opportunity to know more about the luxury design industry and to discover how design can be a driving force of local craftamanship.
