POPs (Portuguese Original Projects) is an iniciative from Serralves Foundation to show new creative projects made by Portuguese designers.
This year, the 3rd Edition happens from the 23th June to the 10th July and, after a unique record of 473 submissions in several categories, there were 31 final selected projects.
And, guess what?! I'm one of the three jewellers selected (fireworks popping on my head!)
If you decide to come along and check on those interesting products locally, make sure you pay a visit to the Museum and the amazing garden.
Meanwhile, take a look at the list of finalists I've arranged for you with the few links I could find (if you happen to know anyone on the list, be a dear and leave a comment with their link, ok?).
