The Magnólia collection is one of the most recent launches in the exclusive collection of timeless decorative objects that pay homage to Serralves' heritage.
Originally conceived as a private residence, Casa de Serralves and the surrounding park were the result of a project commissioned by the second Count of Vizela, Carlos Alberto Cabral (1895−1968) for the land of what had been the family's summer farm near Porto .
Designed and built between 1925 and 1944, the House is considered the most notable example of an art deco building in Portugal, having been classified as a Property of Public Interest in 1996. In 2012 the set of built and natural heritage of the Serralves Foundation received the National Monument status.
The authorship of the architectural project of the house can, with some prudence, be attributed to the French architect Charles Siclis, and to José Marques da Silva, famous architect from Porto at the time, who was closely associated with the work throughout its course. In addition, the intervention of the architects and decorators of Casa Ruhlmann, who was entrusted with the interior design
Ana Paula Allen, a Portuguese architect by training, was inspired by the handles of the Casa de Serralves, combining art deco with features of contemporary architecture that characterize it, to create decorative and versatile pieces that look good in any space.
