Beautiful Things: Alma de Luce CARDOSAS table, inspired by InterContinental Porto Hotel

The Cardosas Palace was the inspiration for the Alma de Luce concept, limited edition pedestal table.

The one-of-a-kind piece decorates the InterContinental Porto lobby. Presented to the clients and fans July 2017, during the celebration of the 6th anniversary of The InterContinental Porto Hotel, which is located in the heart of Oporto city. Cardosas Palace marked the occasion with this unique furniture piece, signed by ALMA DE LUCE. The table was inspired in the story of Cardosas Palace and was named “Cardosas”. The piece reflects the memories of an iconic Oporto monument designed to “transport you 19th century elegant ballrooms, those adorned with plaster ceilings and marble floors with refined drawings”. The CARDOSAS functional art captivates with its contemporary design and eye catching qualities, exquisiteness and finesse.

With a timeless design, this artistic table is on display in the 5-star hotel’s lobby. This outstanding piece identifies with the decor of InterContinental Porto – Cardosas Palace, idealized by the international interior designer Alex Kravetz.

The making of this table took 11 months from concept to production. The details of the table were carefully crafted to reflect this charming hotel. The base is made out of wood with silver leaf, the top made of marble, patina brass and silver leaf. The final touch was made with the Limoges ceramic flowers.
