The Museum for Design and Fashion, MUDE, organized the exhibition “Presente, Futuro. Design para a mudança”, which consists of 37 proposals that cover areas diverse as transportation, educations, music and other. Proposals that in some way direct towards a future of change. The ceramic tops Leonor, designed by Rita de Almeida Martins, were one of the selected pieces. In a world of mass consumption the Leonor pieces allow for the re-use of empty common glass containers, turning then into beautiful jars and vases.
