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.
Jewels Dos Santos follow throughout their creative process and the oldest traditions of Portuguese jewelry design, seeking to honor your precious legacy over the past centuries and project its future.
The gold alloy remains faithful to 800 mm (19.2 kts) and there are numerous steps with fully manual component, crucial and decisive for the definition of the individuality of each jewel Dos Santos.
