Our vision is to celebrate the rich legacy of Mexican handcraft through a multifaceted cultural lens. We will continue to unearth incredible talent in both Mexico and beyond to produce a collection of iconic and contemporary furniture from the very best designers and architects in the world.
We’re very excited to introduce you to Luteca, a new furniture company founded in New York by a trio of design-loving friends. Luteca is backed by a passion to highlight modern design from Mexico. We uphold the traditions of mid-century craftsmanship while making use of innovative production techniques to create pieces that are timeless, beautiful and detailed in their manufacture.
Luteca builds on Mexico’s illustrious design legacy while speaking to its ever-evolving present. Each of our creations is a seamless hybrid of minimal silhouettes that is also infused with tenets of Mexican craft. Our design-driven pieces evoke an emotional response that stems from their rich cultural heritage – they are architectural and warm all at once. Coupled with fine Mexican handcraftsmanship, each object is a true collectible.
Our first collection is made up of two lines: one devoted to the iconic oeuvre of Pedro Ramirez Vazquez and the other comprised of our creative director Alexander Andersson’s contemporary designs. Pedro Ramírez Vázquez was a pioneer of sustainable architecture and was already concerned with minimizing waste long before it was a trend. His simple, yet geometric designs combined industrial design with architecture in a manner that was way before its time. In contrast, Alexander Andersson’s creations draw from his childhood, surrounded by Scandinavian design such as Finn Juhl and Hans Wegner. By fusing these aspects with references to his Mexican heritage, his pieces are exciting, yet familiar and exude a cosmopolitan flair.
We are dedicated to design and uphold the principles of craftsmanship at our core.
