This year, DAM is celebrating an incredible 10-year journey of creating inspiring interiors and eco-friendly furniture that resonates with clients and design enthusiasts worldwide. 

Established in 2013, DAM Portugal’s journey began with a win at the Portuguese Original Projects (POPs) competition at the prestigious Serralves Museum. This early recognition was a testament to the brand’s dedication to showcasing the rich and diverse Portuguese heritage and culture through their designs. Shortly after, DAM made a triumphant debut at the 100% Design Fair in London, marking the beginning of its international presence. 


Over the past decade, DAM has continued to captivate audiences across the globe, participating in numerous international exhibitions and expanding its reach to more than 12 countries.

DAM’s commitment to excellence has attracted a diverse clientele, including renowned luxury hotels like Sheraton (SANA Hotels), and Marriott Prague (Marriott International). The company has also had the privilege of serving multinational giants like Google and Survey Monkey. These collaborations stand as a testament to DAM’s ability to blend aesthetic charm with functionality and sustainability, creating interiors that leave a lasting impression.

DAM Portugal’s furniture designs are a fusion of artistry, craftsmanship, and industry – each piece telling a unique story that stirs emotion and enhances interiors in which they’re placed. The company’s portfolio includes a wide range of stunning furniture pieces, from the Nel and Maria wooden bedside tables to the versatile Pipo cork stool, and the elegant Dina and Dora chairs. 


Each DAM product is exclusively designed and meticulously handcrafted in Portugal – a tribute to the nation’s culture and heritage. The brand seamlessly melds traditional techniques with modern design, resulting in furniture that is both visually captivating and deeply rooted in Portugal’s rich history.

DAM’s unwavering dedication to sustainability is evident in every aspect of the design and production process. The company prioritises the use of organic, biodegradable, and renewable materials like cork, straw, wicker, rope, and locally-sourced stones from sustainable forests. This commitment ensures that DAM’s furniture not only exudes beauty, but also embodies an environmentally-friendly lifecycle, making it a responsible choice for conscious consumers.

As DAM Portugal celebrates a decade of remarkable achievements, founders and resident designers Hugo Silva and Joana Santos remain steadfast in their commitment to sustainability and innovation in interior design. Their vision is to establish DAM as the premier choice for interior designers who share their passion for sustainable, culturally-rich furnishings. 


With a bright future ahead, DAM Portugal is poised to continue creating extraordinary spaces that bring joy and make a positive impact on the world of interior design.

In the next decade and beyond, DAM Portugal’s dedication to craftsmanship, sustainability, and captivating design narratives will undoubtedly leave an indelible mark on the world of interior design and modern furniture. Here’s to another ten years of innovation, inspiration, and making a difference!
