You. might remember Origin Made from the beautiful Still Life exhibition curated by Gabriel Tan in the  Milanese apartment I showed on the blog last year. Now the brand unveils the first part of its new 2024 collection during Lisbon Design Week at Lisbon by Design, which takes place from 22 to 26 May 2024.

Founded and curated by Julie de Halleux, the 4th edition of Lisbon by Design celebrates high-end Portuguese design, furniture, and crafts and is held at the majestic Palacete Gomes Freire, a two-storey mansion built in 1878 on land acquired by the Portuguese Crown.


Materials Intention

Part I of the new collection consists of four new designs – two lighting fixtures, and two furniture series. Embodying the theme “Materials Intention”, each piece features a thoughtfully selected natural material set against another, with the tension and harmony between the materials and the forms of each material defining each design.

In 2024, Origin Made stays true to its commitment to materiality, while expanding its horizons by introducing new materials and collaborating with new makers and designers to offer a wider range of furniture, lighting and objects. In particular, the introduction of a natural textile and the notion of weaving stands out as new initiatives for the brand

The Alturas Pedestals are constructed from solid wood and come in three distinct heights, offering robust platforms to stoutly showcase treasured objects either by itself or alongside others.

The Nest Lamp and Heirloom Globe Lamp, also by Gabriel Tan, combine a frosted glass sphere with either a hand-turned wood or carved marble stone base (Nest Lamp), or a sculpted metal one
(Heirloom Globe Lamp). Both lamps combine the vision of the brand’s creative director Gabriel Tan and the generational know- how of a family-owned lighting workshop, resulting in versatile lighting fixtures that can be either wall- or ceiling-mounted.

Norwegian designer Silje Nesdal is this year’s new addition to Origin Made’s list of designer collaborators. Her Veil Cabinets thoroughly aligns with the theme of the collection: linen emerges as a focal point – its natural drape and fluidity are juxtaposed against the solidity of wood. Inspired by Japanese Noren curtains, the linen sheets serve as doors, inviting a dynamic interplay of light and shadow while offering glimpses into the Veil Cabinet’s contents.
