Lasca

Designed by Marco Sousa Santos.

Lasca

Like a polished pebble from a riverbed, lasca's softly rounded form and rich texture reintroduce the look and feel of nature into your own environment.

Featured in different sizes and shapes, lasca functions as a support or work surface. Steadier than a tray, more practical and unrestricting than a table, you can use it to rest a tv-remote or glass, prop up a computer or set your notebook or reading material down.

  • With its resistant, non-slippery cork body and earthy, elemental appeal, lasca's unobtrusive, grounding presence is equally at home by the pool, in a sunny patio or indoors.
