Modern furniture design is a surprising blend of creative ideas, new forms and exciting materials. Fernando Laposse, a student at London College of Art and Design, created these fabulous modern furniture pieces, a floor lamp, vases and planters, combining natural wood with sponges.

His modern furniture collection look functional, comfortable and very decorative. The unique texture make furniture look interesting and unusual. Its neutral colors work well with natural wood tones, creating pleasing an eye combinations of neutral colors.

The designer was born in Mexico. Maybe that’s why he got inspired by the warmth of his country and sponges that grow on the seabed. A wet bathroom sponge, made from a sponge skeleton, is soft and warm. The LUFA Series collection that include amazing furniture and lighting fixtures appear very familiar and warm also.
