Based on drawings from the late 19th century originating from the Vista Alegre Museum collection, the pieces in this collection merge Vista Alegre’s past with the present. Inspired by both the charm and the dichotomy between opposing natures, the Duality collection portrays the dialectic between reason and emotion, control and explosion, sobriety and excess. On the main faces of its pieces, classic elements prevail, in white, subtly arranged in a delicate harmony. On the other side, lush flowers burst out, seeking to invade the peace and destabilize the regularity, in a swirl of colors and romantic motifs.

- About Vista Alegre:
Founded in 1824, the Vista Alegre Porcelain Factory was the first industrial unit dedicated to producing porcelain in Portugal. Over its long history, the Vista Alegre brand, which has always been intimately associated with Portuguese history and culture, has achieved unparalleled recognition and visibility.
Public recognition, perceived quality and the company’s investment in innovation and design have turned Vista Alegre into one of the very few Portuguese luxury brands to achieve iconic status on a worldwide level.
Having adopted rigorousness, sophistication and versatility as its core values, Vista Alegre has been able to harmoniously combine tradition and modernity, and remain attuned to cultural trends. Vista Alegre products reflect the most recent design trends and are manufactured according to the highest quality and functionality standards. In addition to using state-of-the-art production techniques, the porcelain factory also employs 17 hand painters, who are responsible for decorating the pieces produced.
