Ambiente preview: LSA International

During upcoming consumer goods show, Ambiente 2017, which runs February 10-14, LSA International will present its largest range to date

Building on the success of LSA International’s 50th anniversary last year, 2017 will see the brand launch its largest range to date.

Tactile combinations of mouthblown glass, natural wood and soft leather are central to this season’s aesthetic – complemented by coloured, textured and iridescent finishes. Architectural squares, columns and spheres contrast with curved and flared forms.

Specialist drinkware sets for gin, champagne and wine accompany versatile glasses for cocktails and spirits. Spherical vases tilt and turn on moulded ash wood bases. Vase duos double as bookends and multipurpose containers can be used to serve food, collect jewellery, display stationery or pot plants. In addition, best-selling collections will be enhanced with new designs.

To produce these distinctive products for entertaining, dining and decorating, expert craftsman combine complex, traditional techniques with high quality raw materials for an unrivalled finish.

Celebrating form and function, LSA International’s SS17 range offers contemporary designs for the modern consumer.
