Claus Porto opens its first global boutique in NYC

People of new york, you can have known a piece of Oporto in your heart and in your hand. The rich, vibrant history of the Portuguese soap and fragrance company Claus Porto has been cast in a new light, with the opening of its first international boutique this week in New York City.

Claus Porto’s new home fuses its beautifully designed past with a revelation of its present, a gesture aided by the store’s parametrically designed interior from Tacklebox Architecture.

Stretching across the length of the ground-floor space, Tacklebox’s principal Jeremy Barbour has created a 42 ft long archway made entirely from Portuguese cork, which visitors can step into and admire Claus Porto’s signature products. Etched with a repeating diamond motif that recalls the tiled façade of the historic Casa dos Bicos house in Lisbon, the dynamic cork structure also nods the architecture and intricate azulejo tile work of the São Bento train station in Porto, with its intricate texture and commanding form.

Here, photographs of the company’s founder and its factory, examples of its original packaging and flaçons from the art deco era and even a certificate showing that Claus Porto attended and won the gold medal at the 1904 Universal Exhibition in St. Louis, show just how far the company’s creative roots go.

With industrial, yet delicate suspended LED lighting running like a spine overhead, this portal to Claus Porto’s cultural cache doesn’t just look backward, but forwards to its future as well.
