Lifestyle: A roundup of decor shopping and design.
Domkapa: Domkapa is an upholstery specialized brand based in Northern Portugal. As such, Domkapa holds a tremendous passion for detailed stitching, presenting several similarities to the haute-couture philosophy focused on the value of ‘made by hand’. The use of techniques such as manual cuts, hand sewing – plain seam, stitches seam, double stitched seam, slot seam, corded seam, piped seam – artisanal couture techniques – seams, darts, tucks, pleats hand – are uniqueness providers, making the sewing machine only a support compared to the mostly manual work. The brand’s philosophy is adding value to each item, making it one of a kind.
Design meets comfort – How does this happen? Everything starts indoors. Domkapa’s design team works side to side with the production, and this organic synergy allows the creation of innovative designs. Domkapa’s pieces are re- interpretations of classics, always respecting the design principles of proportion, balance, colour, shape and texture; nevertheless, without losing the brand’s identity. It’s getting harder to find comfortable and unique design pieces in the market. The art of Design is usually seen as something artistic but uncomfortable and with a lack of ergonomics.
Domkapa challenges its team to create the perfect daily meeting between Design and Comfort in each piece of the brand’s collections – from the foams to the woods and metals, everything is meticulously thought out to provide comfort and design to the client. www.domkapa.pt
