La Loupe Design
La Loupe Design is the work of Jorgelina Lopez, a textile designer, and Marco Duenas, a functional artist and woodworker. The name La Loupe, (from French loupe which means “magnifying glass”) arises from the idea of observation and discovery. Influenced both from Japanese and Mid-Century design La Loupe incorporates different textile techniques - such as printing, dyeing, and weaving- with traditional woodworking. Along with their lighting collection, the couple 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. Each piece is designed and built by hand in their textile studio and woodshop in Baltimore, Maryland.
