Experimentadesign and Veritas have established a partnership that has combined the activity of Veritas – international auction house created by a group of specialists with vast years of national and international experience within the art market, and which is now venturing into the field of design, with the extensive know-how of experimentadesign, resulting in a new approach to themes linked to design, investment and collecting.
Reflecting its vocation in the field of research and the dissemination of information and knowledge, experimentadesign proposed the creation and coordination of an International Advisory Board
that will provide a strategic frame for the work done by Veritas, along with the creation of a series of debates on the theme of design, collecting, limited editions and series, in connection with auctions.
The first debate will take place on the 27th of May and brings to Lisbon one of the most prominent players of the design world, Alexander von Vegesack, collector, founding director of the Vitra Design Museum and President of the Domaine de Boisbuchet. Furthermore, the debate will also include two Portuguese protagonists, Paulo Parra, professor, designer and collector and Luis Royal, researcher and design critic, along with the participation of Walter Bettens, editor of DAMnº Magazine, as agent provocateur.
The debate, which is moderated by Guta Moura Guedes, President of experimentadesign, precedes the opening of the exhibition of the pieces up for auction, which will be open to the public from the 28th of May to the 3rd of June. The auction will take place on the 4th of June at Veritas.
