About Luis Pons D-LAB
Luis Pons D-LAB is a conceptual design laboratory that operates from the assumption that experience is mutable. Everything is not just open to interpretations, everything is open to reinterpretation, and that doorway never closes.
Founder Luis Pons expresses a delight in the potential of materials, spaces, and places to be more than simply inanimate recipients of admiration – he wants them to be touched and played with, fully experienced – he wants people to be fully engaged in their surroundings. As a result his architecture, interiors, installations, and even furnishings have a dynamic energy that is unique. Inanimate objects come to life, acting as catalysts that invite people to discover more about themselves and their environment.
New systems emerge by taking objects out of their context and reintroducing them in surprising ways with a sense of humour, magic, and surprise.
Rejecting the separation between buildings and their interiors, Luis Pons D-LAB designs from the inside out, thinking always in terms of systems.
Form and function are mutated to reveal new meanings and interpretations of objects. In Luis Pons’ designs it is not just that things are not what they seem, sometimes, they are not even what they are.
