Cabracega, a design firm in Portugal, has invited graffiti artists Hium, Mar, Mr. Dheo, Quillograma and Tosco to give classic Portuguese porcelain sets a graffiti motif.
It's intended to confront two different places and times. On one hand, we have the elegant quality of porcelain - represented by the table sets and decorative objects, taking us back to a different timeframe. On the other hand, there is graffiti as an art form and a way for contemporary urban intervention, which aims to promote new perspectives over cityscapes.
The pieces were shown at Experimenta Design Lisboa and will remain on view through October 9th at Espaco Zaum in Lisbon. More info here, and a couple more shots after the jump.
