DACIANO DA COSTA |From space to space form, Exhibition held by Clink, a cultural organization, together with Atelier Daciano da Costa, 9 September 2022


Exhibition that explores the holistic essence and relevance of the work of Designer Daciano da Costa - the greatest pioneer of Portuguese Design, curated by Le Brimet and Susana Chasse. Event organized by CLINK in collaboration with the Atelier Daciano da Costa.

An unprecedented show, the first after twenty-one years, which highlights the creative spirit of the author and the materialization of his ideas in modernist objects of different scales, industrial/artisanal processes and materialities, created in space-time intervals defined a priori. Design for context, made for a specific space but simultaneously capable of going beyond the initial conditions, affirming itself as a work of design in all its fullness - Total Design, Timeless and authentic. An experience of pedagogical and sensorial contemporaneity that reveals the vital importance of design in the definition of Daciano's professional path, who made practice an academic and professional discipline, and experimentation a constant in his signature.

The historical past takes us back to the genesis of thought and action-concretization, the present is now defined by the re-editions coordinated by the Atelier Daciano da Costa, led by his daughter and architect Inês Cottinelli. The future will be the national and international affirmation of the legacy inseparable from national history and culture, materialized and immortalized in forms that fill spaces, homes, museums, and public buildings - Man/Mark. A global experience organized and presented by CLINK, in close collaboration with the Atelier Daciano da Costa, which exhibits original pieces and re-editions, a documentary, drawings by the author, photographs and podcast - Testimonies of the unique and unrepeatable universe of Daciano da Costa, the creative who designed forms for architectural space, creating space in culture for the affirmation of his forms.
