Fruit of a career spanning five decades, the pieces created by Daciano da Costa continue to surprise us by the way they combine the familiar and the and the unexpected, tradition and innovation. With a consistent trajectory and attentive to social issues, the designer has conceived furniture and other iconic objects, exploring Portuguese and cosmopolitan, timeless and contemporary references. This creative profusion is presented in the exhibition "Daciano da Costa - Father of Design in Portugal" at the Kinda store in Amoreiras, Lisbon (from March 17th to 30th) and at his store in Porto (from April 13th to 28th). This exhibition will mark the beginning of a partnership: for the first time this Portuguese brand will have in its catalog of authors a national design studio.

The partnership Kinda x Atelier Daciano da Costa arises from the common desire to disseminate the History of Portuguese Design. In this partnership, Kinda will commercialize the system of shelves, developed by Daciano da Costa in the 1970s, in close partnership with Metalúrgica da Longra, in what was one of the most productive one of the most productive relationships between industry and design in Portugal. The Práctica system values customization and flexibility to create sets of small and large shelves large and small sets of shelves, in a single tone or combining several colors. With props and shelves of various sizes, in a wide palette of colors, selected among those the author used in his furniture, the Práctica system allows an endless number of solutions.
