In the lobby, guests can expect a new, lighter paint job, bronze inserts and mirrors—all intended to “interplay with the original frescoes and period features of the former convent.” There’s also a variety of new hanging lamps, table lamps and floor lighting. Furniture classics from Italian design brands decorate the areas.

Through the lobby, guests reach Zelo, the new restaurant helmed by Executive Chef Fabrizio Borraccino. During the day, the restaurant changes its identity to Zelo Bistrot, and the expanded outdoor area allows for seating both inside and out. Zelo Bistrot offers a menu of light dishes, while in the evening, Zelo proposes both an à la carte menu as well as a tasting menu of the chef’s creations. The menu, Four Seasons says, has been completely redone to reflect guests’ evolving tastes and Chef Borraccino’s focus on Italian cuisine and the best local producers.

Guests can also sit outside in the hotel’s garden. The new menu created by Bar Manager Luca Angeli offers innovative new signature drinks and has a focus on ice craftsmanship. The menu has everything from Aeropress American coffee to a classic club sandwich to Negroni Sbagliato. Health-conscious guests can look forward to light plates and salads.

Portuguese Hand-Painted Tiles – An Ode to Craftsmanship

Portugal is a country of tradition, a country where, still to this day, Craftsmanship is very present in our design and architecture. Hand-painted tiles, also known as Azulejos, are an ancient art which involves a specific way of hand-painting tin-glazed ceramic tilework.

Azulejos are currently one of the most representative forms of Craftsmanship in Portuguese culture, the hand-painted tiles reflect a tradition with hundreds of years. The Azulejo is a clay or ceramic plate piece, generally with a square shape, decorated with glazed colorful designs. Most tiles show Moorish designs which have curvilinear, lacelike, and looping designs, or even geometric or floral motifs.

These techniques were introduced into Portuguese culture by the king Manuel I after a visit to Seville in 1503. Applied to pavements and walls, this form of Craftsmanship is now part of the Portuguese cultural identity. They usually evoke vital historical and mythical scenes from Portugal’s past, so they are treasured for their storytelling which prevails despite the passage of time. This form of artwork can be found both indoors and outdoors, especially in churches, palaces, schools, restaurants, bars, hospitals, subway stations and even in some ordinary houses.

Portuguese Hand-painted Tiles – A Ode to Craftsmanship The Art of Hand Painted Tiles Behind Boca do Lobos Luxury Furniture 13

The process of making these beautiful hand-painted tiles is very meticulous and an ode to Craftsmanship. A tile is chosen to see if it is cracked, the good ones have a hollow sound when hit against each other.  The drawing is done on a parchment paper that is drawn with a graffiti pen and stamped with a coal pencil on to the tile. The paintwork is done with water-based paint, a powder that is mixed with water to work the density.

Although being an integral part of the Portuguese culture, this technique is being lost since there has been less and less apprentices interested in learning this intricacies behind it. However, Boca do Lobo is committed to preserving this elaborate yet refined form of Craftsmanship which inspired the Heritage series, a collection that displays different layers, each one illustrating a different story.

BocadoLobos Anniversary 15 Years and 15 Exclusive Pieces 1

The similar styles of designs of these pieces are not by chance. Both of these designs were among some of the first creations Boca do Lobo brought into the world. Soho is the name of Boca do Lobo‘s first furniture design collection. The drawers on both creations count different and varied techniques from glass to wood, lacquer color to mirror and gold leaf, finely refined by brass handles.

“It was with the launch of these products that a path was discovered, which gave room to a new way of thinking and design attitude that ends up becoming a language, a soul, a style: the Boca do Lobo style, that mixes techniques and styles of past with contemporary design.”

–  Marco Costa

Projected to be the jewel in the crown of the Portuguese brand Boca do Lobo, the Diamond Sideboard is a reflection of the furniture jeweler’s expertise and quintessence, undoubtedly deserving its title. This opulent object, full of resources and desire, has two carefully sculpted doors that reveal a gold lined interior with a shelf and two drawers. But because we never settle, we continued to evolve this creation with the aid our trusting craftsmanship techniques, the Diamond Metamorphosis was born. The finest craftsmanship arises from the perfect marriage between ancient skills and mechanical methods to conceive the real expression of exclusivity and high collectible design.

“Diamond was the first major challenge that mixed the modernist style and resulted in an unlikely combination. It was our intention to create two separate moments: a modern appealing visual confronted with a cultural discomfort due to its lion feet.”

MONDRIAN SIDEBOARD

BocadoLobos Anniversary 15 Years and 15 Exclusive Pieces 4

When art becomes a sideboard your room acquires an evermore-inspiring atmosphere. The Mondrian sideboard is more art than utilitarian furniture. Undoubtedly, it constitutes a unique and collectible object that is different from anything else and exudes a sense of both experimental design and luxury. The sideboard’s base is composed of mahogany and tempered glass makes the box. It also contains carved drawers finished in high gloss colored lacquer.

“A combination of techniques that result from 18 different suppliers to achieve it. A handle here, a beveled mirror there, manual carving drawers and much more in a set of drawers of this piece that is strangely functional.”

– Marco Costa

HERITAGE SIDEBOARD

Hand-painted-tiles have gained a privileged place in architecture throughout the centuries. Portugal has adopted them like no other country has and to honor the Portuguese hand-painted tiles, Boca do Lobo created Heritage Sideboard. This modern design piece presents a different number of layers, where each one tells a different story.
