Introducing Luteca

View all 15 Photos

An homage to a Mexican icon, an elegant Scandinavian aesthetic, and traditional craftsmanship are the intriguing ingredients found at the core of the first range launched by new design company Luteca. Based in New York, the company creates its products in Mexico and every single piece of furniture is handcrafted and finished by hand in Mexico City. Founded by Amanda Reant, Sebastian Reant, and industrial designer Alexander Diaz Andersson, Luteca’s goal is to celebrate modernist and contemporary Mexican design, and the first range features products from two designers. Alexander Diaz Andersson’s creative approach springs from his Swedish upbringing and Mexican heritage; his furniture products feature minimalism, rustic accents, and “back to basics sensibility”. The second designer is the legendary architect Pedro Ramirez Vázquez, who granted Andersson access to his archive shortly before his death. His designs, previously produced only as prototypes, are now released by Luteca in a collaboration with Vázquez’ son, Javier Ramirez Campuzano. This first collection beautifully combines mid-century design, Scandinavian minimalism, and artisan skill. The furniture pieces range from a simple and refined table to the complex Equipal Chair which features 55 separate components, all bent by hand and finished with bespoke upholstery. Meticulously made by hand, with some pieces taking up to 300 hours of work, Luteca’s collection also features a blend of traditional woodwork, metalwork, along with leather and glass craftsmanship on one side and modern laser techniques usually used in the aviation and auto industry on the other. The result is a timeless collection that pays homage to Mexico’s design and artisanal heritage and introduces the new wave of Mexican designs. Images courtesy of Luteca.
