Mambo Unlimited Ideas production is based in Portugal where a team of skilled craftsmen carefully brings to life every of its original designs with traditional production techniques. Each step of manufacturing is carefully controlled in a close relation between the design and production teams that together bring new designs to life.
Our collection is born from Portuguese centuries old crafts tradition.
These crafts have been perfected by Portuguese craftsmen with years of expertise: the precise and laborious work of lacquered metals, the careful shaping of solid woods, the patient carving of marbles, the sculpting of noble metals such as brass and copper, the delicate work of glass and the detailed and profuse techniques of upholstery, with rich tradition in Portugal.
All of our products are carefully handmade one by one by experienced craftsmen, in a production balanced between state-of-the-art processes and handmade details.
This crafts heritage is an important base stone to our design approach.
Our Design team develops highly creative and functional products rooted in a deep knowledge of materials, their features, the possibilities they offer and that profound knowledge enables us to explore new shapes and solutions to go beyond the usual.
Our design team is all about research, from what is the ideal material and which package is more efficient to what images and materials capture our attention. Each team member contributes with his unique perspective upon the world and all the team works together to design the innovative, thought-provoking pieces that Mambo Unlimited Ideas is proud to present.
This strong focus on research intertwines with our production processes. Embracing our crafts heritage, while up to date with the innovations and creativity developments around the world, we develop contemporary pieces with traditional Portuguese materials and techniques. This aspect is a constant in our creative process and produces high quality products: we mix what we do best – edgy creativity and experienced craftsman production.
For each product developed, the materials are carefully selected and quality is closely controlled to assure the best finishing, resistance and durability.
