OITOEMPONTO was founded in 1993 by Artur Miranda, who was joined by Jacques Bec in 1995. It has combined
the talent of two creators with completely different roots. After living in Sweden for seven years, Artur returned
to Portugal with the Scandinavian influence coursing through his veins, associated with his previous experience
in the fashion world, after graduating from the Escola Árvore school. Jacques is from France and studied at ESAG
Met de Penninghen. He is naturally fascinated by the ornamental richness of the 19th century, new ideas in
interior design, architecture and even lifestyle. Artur is the man of action while Jacques is the perfectionist.
