Miguel Vieira Batista
Trained in IADE Lisbon and the Glasgow School of Art, Miguel Vieira Baptista combines since 2000 his main activity as a product designer with a host of projects in exhibition and interior design commissioned by experimentadesign and the Lisbon Fashion Week among others. He has also curated several design exhibitions like “Dieter Rams Haus” presented at the Centro Cultural de Belém, Lisbon in 2001. He juggles his design practise with lecturing the course of Industrial Design at ESAD.CR in Caldas da Rainha since 2000, or as a guest professor in 2010 at ECAL / Ecole Cantonale d'art de Lausanne. Attention to detail and the juxtaposition between cultured and popular references lends charisma and depth to his designs, that range from limited editions for galleries such as Loja da Atalaia, Cristina Guerra, Marz and Appleton Square, to objects released by brands like Asplund, Authentics and Vista Alegre. MVB's designs have been exhibited around the world and are featured in the permanent collection of MUDE, Lisbon's Museum of Design and Fashion.
