Boah Nova was born from a passion for design and an ever-present desire for beauty, harmony, and originality. We bring together talented designers and create truly unique lamps in our workshop. Our lamps are hand-manufactured with sustainable materials and with the care and time they deserve. Located in the beautiful town of Leça da Palmeira, Matosinhos, we are fortunate to have the Atlantic Ocean at our doorstep.

Sustainability guides everything we do. For us, being sustainable means to:


1. Use ecological and recyclable materials that are already on the market.

2. Employ simple and widely available components that can be easily sourced and repaired.

3. Follow ethical principles, such as a fair payment to all involved in our business.

4. Create timeless designs that endure over time.

Our main material is wood. Wood is a noble and fully ecological material, and the art of woodworking is a centuries-old activity in the North of Portugal. The region is one of the remaining places in the world where tradition and expertise in woodworking continue alive and thriving. We have been building on this expertise and blending it with the flair of new local designers.


Wood is a natural and exquisite material, perfect to shape light. Knots and other elements of wood are a natural occurrence and are part of the feel of the material. Every one of our lamps is, in reality, truly unique since each slice of wood has its own character and richness. We just love that.
