The origins of LSA International are found in fashionable swinging sixties London, when Janusz Lubkowski and his wife Ewa were inspired to approach Terence Conran at Habitat with traditional brightly coloured enamelware from their native Poland.
For over 50 years LSA have created contemporary collections for bar, table and decoration and continue to launch brand new products each season. The materials are carefully selected to ensure our signature, high quality finish, and complex artisan techniques are translated into distinctive products.
