a cadeira dos namorados (lover's chair)
rui pereira a portuguese product designer.
For this special piece I drew inspiration from 'Lenço dos namorados', a embroidery linen type of bandana traditional from Vila Verde, a village located in the North of Portugal. Back in the days the young ladies of this region used to embroider love poems to their beloved ones in departure, in order to win their love. In this way, if the feeling was mutual, the man should use it in public to show the beginning of their relationship. If the man decided not to wear it, it meant that there was no emotional bonding between them.
— i love my portugal!
