Memoir tells a story from a life presenting the feminine essence, taste and experiences of a unique journey through design.This was the name Mafalda Soares chose when starting to draft her first pieces. As a well accomplished interior designer in Portugal, her home, Mafalda has the opportunity to travel and learn through many experiences her career has brought her.
Recently, the Lisbon based designer embarked on a new project, the creation of a distinguished furniture collection, that represents her sensations and developing experience as an artist, using materials that touch her the most – marble and gold leaf. A sort of autobiography that originated through her talent, taste and references, brought to life through the work of skilled artisans who specialize in the materials she loves. This is Memoir’s true mission, to create pieces that symbolize individuality and elegance, through the materialization of a special way of being in life, dreams and emotions. As highly personal pieces, each one tells a specific story, an intimacy that is lightly exposed through exuberance and elegance.
Exhibiting for the first time earlier this year at Maison & Objet Paris, Memoir earned a buzz through the showcase of their first four pieces: the Secret cabinet, the Lust chaise-longue, the Vanity mirror and Ostentation folding screen. With a sophisticated and a timeless personality, the Secret cabinet is the result of the involvement of handcrafted white marble into individual pieces in a radial arrangement. Furthermore, its inside finds a graceful praise with its simple, yet majestic gold leaf interior.
