Lufa Series by Fernando Laposse

View all 16 Photos

Fernando Laposse is a recent graduate from Central Saint Martins, in London; he took on the challenge of exploring the qualities of a loofah or luffa, a tropical and sub-tropical vine that contains a network of xylem or fibers utilized to create kitchen and bath products. Fernando shows us how loofah translates well into a freestanding partition which when placed near a light source, diffuses it yet allows you to see through. As a desk, he uses loofah to give depth and the perceived notion of weight to the piece; also ideal for mobility. Another of our favorite pieces is the planter vases that extend the look of its function to the natural environment. Last but not least, we adore the terra-cotta and loofah combination as the contrast plays beautifully. Both molded natural materials come together and show the careful artesian process from the hand of the craftsman and the mind of the designer.
