The Studio Oitoemponto emerged in 1993 in Oporto, Portugal and was founded by Artur Miranda and Jacques Bec, who works in the area of architecture and interior design. 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 fashion and design, he set himself apart by this 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 foresting and developing as an innate sense of color.
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.
Together, the two designers of Oitoemponto create sublime décors for dozens of lucky people. Each production is the fruit of long hours of coordination during wich the lifestyle of the client is examined in minute detail in order to create an optimum match for their needs and wishes. The result is a subtle mixture of the owner’s tastes and the incomparable talent of Jacques Bec and Arthur Miranda. Unique places, at once refined and convenient to live in, bright and discreet, modern and timeless.
They have their own collections, such as collection of furniture NOSSABOSSANOVA, a collection of silver STERLING SILVER COLLECTION and many other pieces of own authorship. They also represent brands like Frederic Malle, Hervé Van der Straeten, Rankin, Michael Deverne, Ole Wanscher, Max Le Verrier, among many others.
