You Can Now Find MainGUILTY in Armazém, Porto
After the presentation of the brand at ExpoCoruña, the exhibition at the Furniture Museum in Paços de Ferreira, and the ‘Build Your House’ showcase in Qatar, MainGUILTY is once again showing great mastery, now with the exhibition of one of its most iconic pieces in the heart of the city of Porto, Portugal.
Anthea Console can now be visited at Armazém, a vintage store, with a space dedicated to the exhibition of art. It is the perfect place for those looking to relax and drink good wine.
Armazém was highlighted by the prestigious American newspaper New York Times which wrote the following: “One of Porto’s newest multipurpose spaces, Armazém is a (barely) converted warehouse just off the river, west of Ribeira. Housing a cafe bar, gallery, and shops selling everything from vintage furniture to artwork, to colorful clothes and handbags by the Portuguese design brand Mexxca, this space has something for everyone. After shopping, grab a drink and head to the deck chairs on the patio in the summer, or the picnic tables in front of the indoor fire in the winter.”
The Anthea Console piece has a strong vintage inspiration which makes it a standout piece in this incredible space that is Armazém Porto.
Inspired by Phidias, a famous sculptor in ancient Greece and considered the father of idealistic sculpture. If in Egypt, sculpture was represented statically, in ancient Greece, this movement emerged as a form of greatness. They were represented with no imperfections and were always depicted as youngsters, in order to highlight the divine character. (650-600 BC.)
MainGUILTY rediscovers many of the fragmented Greek works, lost over the last centuries, and offers a new form of expression.
The Brand has created a double meaning in Anthea, combining the Japanese proverb of the Three Wise Monkeys, “hear no evil, speak no evil and see no evil” with the culture of Greek sculpture, offering an accent piece of art in any environment.
