Founded in 2006. Started of with a landscaping company, which would work on creating unused outdoor areas into an extension of the living spaces in villas. However the life of a contractor soon starts getting more labor management based and time to dwell on design and creativity has to take a backseat.
Your business is who you are and what your life becomes. It’s a lifestyle. So I decided to take a step back and started looking for materials or products that are not only exclusive but also hard to find in this market.
Products that are being traded regularly start losing value, clients lose appreciation for it, people will bargain and vendors depending on their current financial situation will undercut the competition just to stay ahead. I was looking for a niche.
With more than 200 international exhibitions, its masterpieces can be seen across the globe in exquisite residential projects to leading hotels and contract projects. Renowned luxury department stores such as Printemps in Paris and Harrods in London already selected Marblising to decorate luxury corners for brands such as Fendi and Prada. Giants of hospitality like Fairmont Hotel chain in US, The New York Palace Hotel, Asturias Hotel in Madrid or the opulent Al Jasra Boutique Hotel in Qatar, already conceived five-star interiors through the brand’s collections. Opulent casinos in Europe, or even luxury villas in Oporto, are already home to the distinctive aesthetic that marries traditional craft with a new playful sophistication.
The greatest design and lifestyle publications such as Architectural Digest editions, Designboom, Wallpaper*, ELLE Décor, LUXE Interiors+Design, How to Spend It or Le Monde, have featured Marblising artistic creations as a trend to follow.
The first piece of Marblising was drawn 15 years ago, yet its story started being shaped centuries ago. Around the world, the beauty and wisdom of craftsmanship have survived throughout the times and generations, allowing the creation of soulful design pieces nowadays.
The non-settle feeling of creative minds and the meticulous effort of master artisans, gave the vision to understand the past through forgotten techniques and raw materials and interpret it through cutting-edge technology.
A lengthy tradition of bespoke and exceptional Craftsmanship to make one-of-kind design pieces.
Marblising’s emotional pieces are handmade in Portugal by talented artisans who use their wisdom to combine traditional manufacturing techniques with the latest technological methods. Cabinet-makers, jewellers, soldiers, gilding painters, lacquer painters, master artisans and apprentices, work together in Marblising workshops to delivery exceptional products where no element or detail is overlooked and the human factor is treasured.
A single piece may pass along different skilled hands, and undergo several processes to conceive a unique design expression laying in Portugal’s flair in marquetry, azulejaria, joinery, upholstery, filigree, and metalwork, just to name a few.
A careful enthusiasm with a new-found confidence that goes alongside a passion for the country’s strong craft heritage.
