Furniture is, more often than not, a multisensorial experience. Sure, having furniture that looks beautiful is definitely a big plus, but having furniture that invites you to touch it, run your fingers across its upholstered fabric, and occasionally have your body sink into it is a much more rewarding experience. Portugal-based design brand Domkapa has that aspect pretty much figured out when it comes to designing furniture solutions for homes. Domkapa’s furniture, which is characterized by a soft design, is all about inviting you to interact with it through touch. Combined with well-selected color palettes, high-quality materials, and contemporary forms, Domkapa’s furniture boasts of a bold identity, while looking distinctly comfortable and welcoming.
At this year’s virtual Maison et Objet festival, Domkapa is leveraging this unique opportunity to allow people from all around the world to participate in its exhibition. The Domkapa Virtual Tour offers visitors to engage with a complete virtual-reality exhibition curated to showcase Domkapa’s 2021 collections among other classics. While you won’t really be able to touch and sit on the armchairs, sofas, stools, and beds the way is intended, the virtual tour beautifully sets the scene with furniture aesthetically arranged to complement the spaces they’re in. You can virtually tour the space, entering different rooms set in a beautiful brutalist interior, with the ability to view products and even save them in your personal collection for later.
All of Domkapa’s furniture is created in-house in its Northern Portugal factory, where the design team works side to side with the production with the goal of creating high-quality expressive furniture that highlights and champions its upholstery and the work of the skilled craftspeople working in-house. Domkapa’s pieces reinterpret classics in a modern light, always respecting the design principles of proportion, balance, color, shape, and texture.
