Luteca: Elevated Mexican Furniture for the World Market

March 16, 2017

Founded in 2015, luxe furniture brand Luteca merges traditional craftsmanship with Mexican modernist and contemporary design. The company is the brainchild of longtime industry exec Amanda Price Reant and her husband, Sebastian, who partnered with Swedish/Mexican designer Alexander Díaz Andersson. In addition to Andersson’s own designs, which he describes as “merging midcentury Scandinavian restraint and a distinct Mexican flavor,” Andersson also possesses the rights to archival designs of the late, pioneering Mexican architect Pedro Ramirez Vázquez. Luteca’s inaugural collection, which features new work by Andersson as well as 20 never-before seen designs by Vázquez, pays homage to Mexico’s rich design legacy while at the same time shining light on a promising future.

Thanks to its open back and delicate legs, Air Sofa appears to float in space, but this versatile piece is actually engineered to withstand weight on all parts, including the arms. For pricing and order information, contact Luteca directly.

God is in the details: Each piece by Luteca is finished by hand by Mexican artisans. “Our stainless steel coffee tables can take up to 300 hours of polishing, while wooden pieces are made from sustainable hardwoods,” the founders say. In this shot of the Air Sofa, one can see the hand-tufted cushion as well as the brass finish on the underside of the arms and back.
