Established during London's swinging sixties, Janusz Lubkowski and his wife Ewa began with enamel products from their home country, Poland. From there, they became the leaders in handmade, mouth blown glassware and porcelain all made in Poland with the highest quality.
"Porcelain clay was made into plain white and patterned tableware, popular amongst consumers who sought practical and contemporary designs. Wooden accessories from Polish cooperatives specialising in the folk traditions of woodwork completed the early collections.
But it was mouthblown glass that offered the greatest potential for transformation. Whilst an archetypal tumbler and jug reflected Janusz's affinity for the practical, the versatility of the material spurred experimentation with shape, colour and decoration thereby extending the range for the fashion-conscious consumer."
When daughter, Monika, began working for her father's company, she worked closely with him to understand the craft of the production and began to develop her own unique, creative style.
Monika, now the Designer and Creative Director for LSA International, designs and creates over 250 new products each year in the five original materials- glass, porcelain, leather, wood and enamelled steel. All production remains in Poland to this day.
