The Chair, in Portuguese

At the latest APA fair, LAAF 2019 (Lisbon Art and Antiques Fair), it was with great pleasure to have the presence and partnership of MUDE (Museum of Design and Fashion), with an exhibition of chairs signed by Portuguese designers since 1920 to the present day.

 
 
Curated Talks

25 years of trade shows organized by APA

In order to host LAAF 2020 we have reserved the full space of the harness. We will have the possibility to receive more exhibitors, to increase the exhibition area of current exhibitors, to dedicate more and better space for the events that will take place in parallel with the fair and to diversify the offer and quality of the restaurant and bar.

In addition to continuing successful initiatives such as the Curated Talks, the choice of the Best Stand and the Best Pieces, we plan to partner with the Design Museum which will result in an important exhibition of the museum's collections, concurrent with the fair.
