The unpretentious simplicity of Lisbon’s small streets, where MOR’s studio can be found, is a constant source of inspiration for the firm, which aspires to convert this city into one of the world’s design capitals. MOR pays special attention to the production process, working in close collaboration with top local artisans and manufacturers. This is illustrated by the Bulb light collection, made up of four geometrically shaped lights hand-blown in Portugal and made of opalescent glass, designed by Pedro Sottomayor.
The creative director and one of the partners of MOR with over twenty years’ experience in design, Sottomayor is just one of the experts behind this new brand name and the designer of the first collection launched by the firm just over a year ago. He is also responsible for curating its products, designed by international and national designers and creators, hence reinforcing MOR’s identity as a specialist in signature design.

Allay is one of the most recent examples of this philosophy. Daniel Schofield created this chair with the same minimalist appeal as its name conveys, an antiquated English word meaning to lighten or to alleviate one’s troubles or burdens. It is a robust chair, with lightweight lines and a relaxing pleasing appearance.
