Since its foundation in 1995, this small Portuguese stu dio, based in Porto, has become a genuine landmark of European design. Evidence of their international recogni tion is abundant: a large number of awards received, par ticipation in exhibitions and juries, articles and mentions in the press and, since 2007, membership of the AGI.
Rigorous, daring, lovers of challenges and, above all, keenly aware of the social function of design, the members of R2 have managed to place good Portuguese design on the map of the globalized world of design.
D is a collection devoted to Portuguese designers from various different generations. Artists in several disciplines, from communication to objects, fashion to graphic arts, and from advertising to illustration. In essence they are visual monographs that aim to provide an Initial encounter with the rich yet relatively unexamined history of Portuguese design, highlighting its excellence and significance for the present and future of design teaching and practice.
