Interior Design From Portugal
After developing his talent for many years in fashion, in Portugal and Sweden, Artur Miranda diversified into interior design. Following his resolutely modern and innovative design approach for that time in Portugal, he created Oitoemponto in 1993. Two years later, Jacques Bec joined him, bringing his own very personal French touch from Paris.
They started working in public and commercial places, but their common taste for sophisticated and personalized surroundings soon leads them to develop their creativity in private places – which is now the main part of their job.

In 2002, Artur Miranda and Jacques Bec decide to open a space where they can exhibit their numerous creations such as furniture, carpets, and light fitments. In this 300 m2 showroom, a specialized selection of objects brought from their frequent travels abroad can be found – from Hervé Van Der Straeten´s bronzes to vintage and contemporary furniture.

And a selection of contemporary art. In this big open space, situated in the heart of Porto, Oitoemponto offers a studio where a vast team of professionals develops all kinds of projects. In 2007, Artur and Jacques embraced a new challenge – Architecture.
The team was reinforced with young architects and Oitoemponto was ready to offer its clients a global project. Extremely concerned with the spirit of a place, Oitoemponto creates very personal and cosmopolitan atmospheres.
