CINZEL – Calçada product line

CINZEL’s first collection is inspired in the Portuguese ‘Calçada’ – street pavement made of irregular hand cut stone cubes, traditionally in a mix of black and white (cobblestone). It will be focused on interiors furniture and decorative objects.

The collection is inspired by ‘Calçada’ contrasts, namely:

  • Fragmentation vs. Continuity
  • Unity vs. Duality
  • Regular vs. Irregular

The color selection is also aligned with the Portuguese ‘Calçada’. Three Portuguese marble types were selected:

  • Ruivina (black),
  • Estremoz Branco (White) and
  • Pele de Tigre (white with grey veining).

CECILE MESTELANJOANA CONCEIÇÃO, MARIANA ESTEVES SERRA are the designers behind this collection and INÊS MARTINS of Mármores Central Porto de Mós, the project’s soul, four women in the forefront of Portuguese stone.
