MUDE Museu do Design e da Moda | Lisbon
The MUDE – Museu do Design e da Moda is a quite interesting museum in central Lisbon, dedicated to product design and fashion.
Opened in 2009, the museum originates from the private collection of Francisco Capelo, acquired in 2002 by the Lisbon City Council in order to establish a new museum.
Housed in an eight-story former bank building in the heart of Lisbon, the museum maintains a 2,500-piece collection, composed of a diverse set of furniture, household objects, dresses, and fashion accessories, dating from the 1930s onward. Inside the fascinating museum galleries, designed by Portuguese architects Carvalho and Vilhena, the exhibited objects are arranged like sculptures and are surrounded by bare-concrete walls, thus creating a strong and dynamic contrast with their context.
The museum does not have a traditional permanent gallery, but it is conceived like a work in progress in constant mutation and presents long-term and temporary exhibitions, talks, workshops, and educational programs.
