Luis Porem | Designer | Design Spot On


Luis Porem has been busy. The Portuguese designer has been producing a steady stream of innovative and exciting creations, including a number of different household items and the very unique Rainbow glasses, which can be filled with coloured ink to add a touch of sunshine to your day. Trendspotting recently spoke with Luis to discover what makes this up and coming designer different from all the rest. 


Trendspotting: Who or what inspires you?
Luis Porem: Life, I think. My everyday experiences inspire me and provide me stories to tell. Nature also helps me to understand the importance of time and subtlety. Music plays an important role in my life too. I always work with music on.

Trendspotting: What is the greatest invention of all times and why?
Luis Porem: The book is surely one of the greatest inventions. It's a beautiful object that holds a story inside, part of someone's creativity, a world. The way we use our imagination to create in our minds images of what we're reading and, just in general, the way we receive that information is also, for me, magical.

Trendspotting: What invention would have been better off if it hadn't been invented?
Luis Porem: Weapons.

Trendspotting: What are the three things you don't leave the house without?
Luis Porem: My glasses, my keys (so I can return home) and my clothes, so I can carry my keys in my pockets.

Trendspotting: What was the last concert you saw?
Luis Porem: It was a long time ago, I went to the concert of João Machado (, in Barcelona.

Trendspotting: If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Luis Porem: To speak all languages in the world. I think one of the best things in the world is communication. To be able to talk to anyone, without any barrier, has to be an amazing power.

Trendspotting: What's your favourite style of food?
Luis Porem: I like to taste different flavours and

put some creativity in the plate. Cook with love and

for sure it's going to be delicious.
I like Portuguese food, Spanish food, Italian food, Japanese food…

Trendspotting: If you could have dinner with any famous person, who would it be?
Luis Porem: I would like to have dinner with Gil Eanes, a great Portuguese sailor who passed the Cape Bojador. I would like to ask him what was his motive to risk is life on the unknown. If you mean a person who is still alive, then I'd say I'd like to have dinner with Dalai Lama.

Trendspotting: What would you imagine the world to look like in 15 years from today?
Luis Porem: I like to imagine a better place, with a lot of technology helping us and
with better life conditions for everyone, but I believe that the world will be very similar as today, with, unfortunately, the same problems like conflicts, hunger, diseases, etc. I hope that year after year, this problems disappear and to take place a better world.

Trendspotting: If you could chose any place to live in the world where would you want to live?
Luis Porem: That's a difficult question. I've lived for 2 years in Barcelona and I liked a lot. I think that places with a strong connection to nature, are good places to live, so any place with a natural background, like mountains and forests or near the sea are good options for me.

Trendspotting: Is there anything else you want to share with the world? ☺
Luis Porem: We only life once, be happy and make all that you dream on doing.
