Lucy Tupu - Principal
Lucy Tupu is a classically trained Industrial Designer with over 20 years’ experience designing custom rugs, carpets, furniture and lighting. Lucy has lived and worked in New Zealand, Australia and the United States.
For the past 10 years Lucy has worked with interior decorators and architects in New York, Los Angeles, and Paris producing high-end bespoke rugs and carpets. On every project, Lucy is a design partner first and foremost – she draws on her creative background and collaborates closely with clients to realize their vision, even with budget constraints, leveraging a diverse set of materials and fabrication techniques.
Lucy’s debut collection of furniture, rugs and lighting was launched in May 2016 at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF). The collection, like all of Lucy’s original work, is influenced by her Samoan and New Zealand roots, and epitomizes her trademark look of clean, sophisticated pieces with bold, fun touches that reflect the designer’s personality and aesthetic.
