Please introduce yourself

My name is Omer Gilony. I am 25 years old and I am a set designer and decorator that focuses on events, hospitality and lifestyle.

I was born and raised in Tel Aviv and moved to Lisbon in 2019 pre pandemic for a BA in Design. I went to Milan for my final BA semester which covered Scenography and set design. After concluding my degree, I decided to stay in Portugal.

Immersed within a range of creative industries, can you tell us a bit more about what you do and how you found yourself in these fields?

My background in event decoration and creative direction started with floristry as I opened a floral design studio at the age of 16 in Tel Aviv.

I then started touching on different subjects related to the art of table setting. Creative direction, concept development for events and photoshoots, styling and decoration. Nowadays I offer different services - Creative direction, visual storytelling, set design, food styling, floristry, event styling, Table setting, tableware rental, and concept development and I am always open to trying new services and projects.

With so much of what you do involving visual storytelling and decoration, where, who or what acts as a source of your inspiration?

I am inspired by older times and I aim to revive them in my work. I would define my creative style as Romantic and nostalgic yet I always connect to the brand/ client’s personal style and necessities.

Baroque and romanticism have a big influence on my work and inspiration. I often visit palaces, antique museums and art collections that hold paintings and sculptures from those eras.

I visit the flea market once a week to source objects and tableware that I use in my work and events design.

A must do, see and eat in Lisbon, Portugal

Must do in Lisbon during the summer: find a good “Tasca” which is a traditional Portuguese restaurant and have a long lunch with Fresh Robalo (white fish) and some white wine.

Order some clams in coriander and garlic for a starter.

Stroll at Feira Da Ladra (flea market) on Saturday morning.

Take a cold ocean swim on the coast of Caparica.

What feelings or things evoke a sense of summer for you?

A sense of summer is the smell of sunscreen. It’s this excitement to wake up in the morning. It’s the early morning hours that are a bit chilly and you know that soon the warmth of the sun will take over. The smell of grilled fish, fresh light beer, and white laundry hanging on every window. Peaches and cherries. That’s summer to me.
