LISBON by DESIGN returns to Lisbon with parallel event

The artistic event is held at the Palacete Gomes Freire this weekend, as LISBON DESIGN WEEK attracts art and design lovers to various locations across the city.

LISBON BY DESIGN returns to Palacete Gomes Freire for a third edition with numerous artists, artisans, studios and galleries taking crafts and design to a new level.

Unique pieces of superior quality created especially for LISBON BY DESIGN, a contemporary approach, are on display this weekend courtesy of the 19 participants.


This year, LISBON BY DESIGN will run parallel to a new event, LISBON DESIGN WEEK – created in partnership with From My City. Focusing on Portuguese creativity and objects made in Portugal, this first edition features a diversified programme with a series of events organised by around 50 partners spread across various Lisbon neighbourhoods.
