“Design is the translation of Art through a conscient thinking of everything which makes our environment more special”
Mónica's signature

MOKKI is a lighting and furniture design studio proud of its own story and roots, passionate about Beauty, Design, Emotions, Evolution and deeply connected to the Atlantic influence and openminded Thinkers.

The artist-Designer Mónica Pinto was born in 1977, in the North of Spain, Galicia. Having a multicultural family spent most of her childhood between Spain and Portugal.
Graduated in Fine Art, Decorative Painting, Restoration, Faux-Effect and Frescoes at the Ricardo Espírito Santo Foundation, at the School of Restoration and Recovery Heritage and Drawing at the National Society of Arts. This was the beginning of her path in the world of Art and Design founding her own studio in 1997 in Sintra, Lisbon.

Driven by her own vision and passion, in 2016 she launches her own brand MOKKI Design, where her memories are an integral part of her imagery. The duality of her Portuguese and Spanish heritage is always present in her work. Stepping out of the mainstream of Design trends to focus on the cohesion of humanity and technology within Design, where by her own words “Each line is the beginning of a story”.

Our philosophy is to transmit at all times Art and Emotions.
Mónica together with her partner and mother, Nazaré believe that Art is the purest form of human experience, in which questions, doubts and restlessness of the soul and mind become matter.

Each Mokki collection is conceived, designed, and sustainably manufactured in Portugal.

Bespoke, tailored projects are also designed in our creative studio in Sintra, Lisbon with high standards of quality, seeking to create exquisite pieces that utilise technology and centre around the human experience.
