Oficina Irmãos Marques

in Bairro Alto, Chiado & Cais do Sodré

Even if you don't buy anything, it's worth popping into the gallery/workshop of Brazilian-born Gezo Marques, mainly for his striking woodwork, which channels the maze-like tapestries of Brazilian favela construction into one-of-a-kind cabinetry and wood art. You'll also find provocative paintings, objets d'art, chandeliers and unique interior-design pieces – perhaps easier to lug home than a chest of drawers.
