CUTIPOL is the best result of a constant effort for improvement, an insatiable spirit of inovation and the gathering of expertise and know-how over several generations going back to the very origins of the cutlery industry in Portugal. The bigest quality manufacture has been regarded not as an option but as an absolute necessity. Judicious selection of raw materials. Ergonomic study of the shapes. Sober, practical and refined design. Perfection in finish.
In a sector such as cutlery, where classical design and materials have predominated for decades, CUTIPOL sees it as essential to present a very diversified range of cutlery. The CUTIPOL range includes traditional and modern design, in which great attention has been paid to detail. These new modern patterns called for a great deal of technical knowledge and meticulous care.
Although modern machinery is used for much of the initial work, the old traditional craftsmanship still plays a major role.
LAB98 is a laboratory of experimentation, of provocation, a space where the error is assumed as a fundamental part in the process of searching the answer to a specific question. We believe in design as an experience and we are motivated by complex issues. We believe that an object is more than a single function and we defend the error as a provocation.

Jornalista há duas décadas, são as palavras que interessam a Sandra Nobre, porque se não forem escritas leva-as o vento. Assim, desde 2013, regista as histórias — as dos outros e as que cria — em livros, cadernos, em mensagens para guardar numa garrafa, num lenço de namorados ou numa caixa de velas.
Apaixonada por design, foi na busca da melhor forma de guardar as palavras que foi concebendo os produtos das Short Stories. Juntou-lhes as tradições portuguesas, porque quer preservar saberes e trabalhar com os melhores artesãos em cada área — do vidro a sopro executado pelos mestres vidreiros da Vista Alegre Atlantis, à cortiça produzida pela Robcork, as velas seculares da Casa Loretto, a arte da encadernação de uma vida inteira nas mãos de Arménio dos Anjos…
Bem recebidos, os produtos das Short Stories foram finalistas no POPs — Produtos Originais Portugueses, da Loja de Serralves, em 2014. Cada um conta uma história: My Short Story. Em simultâneo, escreve livros por medida, histórias de amor, biografias, viagens, contos infantis, livros corporativos… É uma storyteller. E ainda arranja tempo para viajar, a sua paixão maior, registada no blog www.somewhere.com.pt.
