LSA International is one of Europe’s leading brands of contemporary handmade glass and porcelain. Launching over 250 new products each year, the brand is admired globally for its unique style and enduring quality.
ABOUT THE BRAND
At designjunction 2018, LSA International will take visitors on a journey through their process of designing and making mouthblown glass objects with an experiential installation, designed in partnership with long-term collaborators, AMD. The layout allows the visitor to take a journey through a curated collection of timeless and award-winning designs from the LSA archives, and exclusively preview prototypes from forthcoming ranges. – for the very first time.
Inspiration for the installation was taken from the glass-making process and the tools used to skillfully sculpt each piece. The pieces are mounted onto rods, representative of the blowing rods used to blow the glass.
Through this installation LSA International and AMD hope to bring a level of understanding and appreciation of the design, skill and craftsmanship required to make each piece by hand: to create an object that is valued and adds to your own personal way of living.
Contemporary design, traditional craft
The vision of designer, Monika Lubkowska-Jonas, each piece is designed in the UK and made in Europe by some of the world’s most skilled artisans.
LSA International’s designs are brought to life by some of the world’s most talented craftsmen, located in Poland – a country with a long and rich heritage in glass, porcelain and wood production. Their skills have been refined and perfected over several generations and the process continues to evolve as LSA International explore new techniques.
