We are Mónica and Soraia and we were born in Porto. We first met at the first year of the Interior Design course, at the Superior School of Arts and Design in Matosinhos and have been friends since then.

Together we have completed our Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, developed several academic projects and shared the first project of Architecture and Interior Design in a professional context.

During our conversations and our breaks, we shared our urges and ambitions and then realized that they merged beautifully. Given that, we thought that we shared the same thought about the world of events or, as we prefer to call it: encounters of affections. We thought that the services offered in that sense are presently too strict and rigid. The lack of customization has led us to intervene in this area and to create a project of our own, in which we can be ourselves completly: a project in which we strongly believe and are capable of see ourselves in.Given various contacts of different artistic and cultural areas, the knowledge that has been acquired during our training period, the willingness and perseverance that we incessantly put into practice at work, has brought and build-up this project, PILAR.
