The Amazing Set of Furniture Designs Inspired by the Art of Azulejos

The Amazing Set of Furniture Designs Inspired by the Art of Azulejos ⇒ The art of Azulejos is a traditional tile technique used in Portugal, mostly in historical buildings, since it acts as a wall covering decoration, layering large surface areas on the inside or outside of buildings. Over the last years, it has also started being used in interior design, mainly in the manufacturing of furniture and accessories. Around the world, this practice is perhaps best known as ceramic tiles painted in blue artistic patterns. This art gives a whole new aesthetic value to a creation and reflects a tradition of hundreds of years, where important moments of one’s history are often portrayed on the tiles. Today, Interior Design Blogs tells you more about this highly decorative art, as well as how it was the main inspiration for an incredible collection of furniture designs.

Azulejo can be defined as a clay or ceramic plate piece, generally with a square shape decorated with glazed colourful designs, and the majority of tiles shows Moorish designs which have curvilinear, lacelike and looping designs, or even have geometric or floral motifs.

This ornate and refined art was the inspiration behind the brand’s Heritage series, a collection that displays different layers, each one illustrating a different story. Among the remaining Portuguese artists of azulejo and a member of Boca do Lobo’s team is Mr Araújo, a brilliant mind who is always looking to create antique things and historic panels in a forward-thinking way. An artist who loves to draw and to paint since he was a little boy.

“I wanted to study Fine Arts, but my mother worked at a ceramics factory where they had a very old painting section. I had the opportunity to work only for the summer holidays, but actually, I love it and I stayed for years.” – Mr Araújo, adding that “The way we perform today is the same it has being done for the last 40 years, and certainly how it will be done for the next 40 years.”

 

The process is very meticulous. 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 on a parchment paper that is drawn with a graffiti pen and stamped with a coal pencil in the tile. The paintwork is done with water-based paint, a powder that is mixed with water to work the density.
