R+D.LAB was founded by Jay Vosoghi and Sara Mostofi in 2006. A creative studio driven by a reverence for aesthetics and purpose. "We believe in the beauty of form, power of colour, and character created through honest traditions."
Their intrinsic belief in research and design is at the heart of their projects. Designed in unison, the two styles, Luisa and Tuccio, were named as a homage to Italian architect Piero Portaluppi's two children. Famously known for designing the Villa Necchi Campiglio in the 1930's (later the set for "I Am Love' with Tilda Swinton), Portaluppi is a muse for creating worldly pleasures of day-to-day living.
Providing experience and the impetus for collaborative exchange, R+D.LAB work with classic artisans and small traditional manufacturers. "Together, we work as a team to create highly distinctive products that are functional, sustainable and meaningful for modern life." R+D.LAB glassware is crafted from Borosilicate glass which is known for its pure and resistant quality, shaped with traditional mouth blowing techniques. The innovation of design comes from modern shapes inspired by aesthetics of rationalist and modernist architecture whilst respecting its functionality.
