Slanted Portugal Special Edition: Os Posters da Confooso


A Slanted visitou a Bürocratik em Coimbra e escreveu coisas bonitas sobre eles.

Mostrou-nos também alguns dos cartazes que a Confooso tem feito para nós. Uma maravilha, portanto.

In February 2016, the Slanted editors embarked on a two-week-trip to Portugal to take a close-up look at contemporary design work in the country. In front of the backdrop of wine, sun, beach, and sea, history-charged buildings, financial crisis, and unemployment, a new generation of designers grows up who defines the dramatic change of the country.

Women with baskets full of fish are old postcard clichés from the past. The cosmopolitan Lisbon is one of the last Western European capitals awakening from its deep slumber. In this three million metropole an uprising age group resists stereotypes of battered monuments and picturesque paved alleys and looks nervously to the future with a steady attempt to catch up on lost time.

Other Portuguese cities pass through a similar renaissance. Slanted’s journey took them from Lisbon to Porto with a stop in Coimbra, visiting all in all 27 studios. Some people said that Lisbon was the woman while Porto was the man. The first one more smooth and emotional while the northern one is more kind of direct and rational. For both of them, old and new seem to clash with tradition and avant-garde.

Historic factories such as Viúva Lamego (tiles) and Viarco (pencils) proved that they were able to redefine themselves without losing their souls. Same goes for the new energetic generation of designers that grew up with the financial crisis and unemployment: time has come to redefine the dramatic change of their country, influencing all aspects of cultural life.

The issue is thematically complemented by illustrations, photography, interviews and essays.
