INSPIRATION LIES IN THE ORIGINS
Since 2014 the brand has aspired to open a store in Porto, to operate as a logistics centre, showroom and store for the end customer. During 2016, they moved forward with this objective and finalised this step, the start of a long list of ambitions. Baião will thus represent “the land” and Porto the logistics centre for the world, never forgetting the origin and the details associated with it. Visitors will see green, representing the colour of the landscape of Baião, between wood and steel, which give it a rustic look and emphasise the authenticity of the products.
THE PRODUCTS ARE THE STARS
The growing wide range of products finds a perfect accommodation to feel “at home” in this space. The wooden boxes are reminiscent of the lovely and endearing traditional boxes, which display, with the help of LEDs, a product filled with beauty, colour and quality, just waiting to be tasted. We almost want to take, not the product, but the shelf, including the box. The tables at different levels and the removable walls give dynamic and versatility to the space, in consonance with the delicacies present. We want to move, glide and navigate in a welcoming and intimate space.
SERRALVES IS SO CLOSE
When the days are bright outside, the people of Porto like to stroll with their families or go on a date to enjoy the delights of the city. Very close to the showroom are the gardens of Serralves, which would certainly be a good excuse to buy your jam or preserves before the picnic, which would certainly make the walk unique. This would be one of the programmes you might imagine, but consider also that this store is in a marvellous location, right in the heart of the points of interest.
EXPERTISE AND THE TOUCH OF CONSTRUCTION
In addition to the aforementioned inspiration, location and versatility of the store, we must also note that all of the details are handmade, like the skill and delicate way the employees of Casa do Vale pick each fruit, mushroom or other product and forward it to you. This store in Porto is and will be a place you will want to visit and revisit… revisit… revisit….
