MIDD DESIGN is a brand created with the intent to reinvent the Portuguese traditions through design.
Unique pieces with an exclusive design, created through the strength of handcrafting techniques that were passed on through to today, from one generation to the next. They earn contemporary by the hands of exquisite artisans, while the memory of the origins of their craft is far lost.
Sharing a space with a MIDD DESIGN piece means to create a strong bond between the roots of historic past and the modernity of our times.
