“Don’t waste your time out, spend your time in”
– Artur Miranda –
A Little Bit About Our History
OITOEMPONTO* emerged in 1993 from the perfect alchemy between two strikingly different but terribly complementary personalities. It is almost the ideal success story.
With Artur Miranda’s experience of the world of design and fashion, he set himself apart by his decidedly modern vision of decoration, a clearly marked desire to break with the established codes and dare the most unexpected combinations, while at the same time fostering and developing an innate sense of colour. Jacques Bec brings to the duo a refreshing enthusiasm and the French touch, as well as the precious know-how acquired during his studies at the Met de Penninghen graphic arts school in Paris.
To recognize the DNA of OITOEMPONTO is to understand that this story is made of many others that moves back and forward, whenever a project so requires.
Unique places, at once refined and convenient to live in, bright and discreet, modern and timeless…
*OITOEMPONTO means “eight o’clock precisely” in Portuguese.
