Janusz Lubkowski co-founded LSA International in 1960s London during a period of cultural and social change. His belief in a diversity of ideas and passion for contemporary design ensured the company thrived.
Janusz's daughter, Monika Lubkowska-Jonas, is LSA's current Designer & Creative Director. Through shared experience and values, Monika continues to develop her father’s vision and a culture of understanding that defines our company’s past, present, and future.
LSA recognizes the value of skilled craft in the modern era. It takes time and care to make each product by hand. The respect for the art and dexterity of craftsmanship ensures that products are created with integrity.
GLASS - Mouthblown glass offers almost endless potential for transformation. Experience enables LSA International to experiment with different techniques, pushing the boundaries of hand production.
WOOD - All wood is FSC®-certified – the independent, internationally-recognized mark of responsible and sustainable forestry. The LSA design team works with walnut, European ash, oak, and beech as each wood possesses its own unique characteristics.
PORCELAIN - Porcelain has been prized for centuries for its balance of durability and delicacy in comparison to other ceramics. The complex production process involves multiple stages, from to shaping and firing to glazing and decoration.
LSA International is very conscious of the responsibility to reduce our environmental impact. Their intention is to create useful, relevant products which endure in quality and style, with focused investment in solutions to address environmental issues and a consciousness of what products are created and the processes involved.
