The Luella mirror is designed by Franco Albini & Franca Helg and was originally produced in Italy during the 1950s. The combination of rattan and the curved geometric pattern makes the Luella mirror as decorative as it is functional. The Italian duo Franco Albini and Franca Helg were renowned architects and had their heyday in the 1950s, producing a wide range of renowned furniture designs as well as architectural works and properties.
The Luella Mirror is handmade from sustainable Indonesian rattan by skilled wicker makers. Rattan is extremely flexible and when it gets steamed it can be formed by hand, using old traditional manufacturing techniques and a few simple tools. Rattan is the most sustainable material for furniture manufacturing as it regenerates in the span of 5-7 years. Rattan comes in 600 different variants, and at Sika-Design we only use the two best qualities called Tohiti and Manau.
