LA LOUPE DESIGN has its origins in Buenos Aires, Argentina where Jorgelina Lopez, a Textile Designer, started exploring fiber as a tridimensional form. In 2016, after moving to the USA, with her partner Marco Duenas, a wood and cross-disciplinary artist, the couple started working in collaboration to create the first La Loupe Collection.
The name La Loupe, (from French loupe: magnifying glass) arises from the idea of observation and discovery. Influenced both by Japanese and Mid-Century design La Loupe incorporates different textile techniques - such as printing, dyeing, and weaving- with traditional woodworking.
Along with the handcrafted lighting collections, La Loupe also creates wall art and home decor accessories exploring the connection between contemporary design and traditional crafts; finding inspiration in geometric patterns and forms in nature.
