LEMUR DESIGN | JULY 2021 PRE-ORDERS

You Gotta Know When to Fold Them⁠

Like Fora, Lemur Design don’t like to take themselves too seriously. They enjoy bringing humour into their work. It’s part of the way they intend their sustainable FOLD wallets, handbags and leather accessories to be discovered…with a smile.

Lemur is the Danish/Portuguese duo of Nanna and Fernando, a designer and architect. After making leather and ceramic products out of their Danish studio, they decided to take a COVID pivot leap and move their family and workshop to Portugal (Fernando’s home country). Setting up in a “Design Incubator” in the Municipal Matosinhos Food Market in Porto, Lemur feel like they’re finally home.⁠

Incubator indeed! They can literally hear roosters singing Fado while they work!

Why the veges?, you ask…⁠

For their portrait, Fernando and Nanna decided to attack the market’s vegetable stands for props. Seems like a good fit, don’t you think?⁠

“Next time”, says Fernando, “we will go for the fish, who knows!...⁠

...We also wanted to have a portrait where the more you look, the more you notice new details and funny takes on our products”.
