One of the design studio that is oriented for a more human creation of objects which respond to real situations and interactions rather than to purely functionalist is La Mamba, a young design team established in 2008 in Spain.
They offer a new vision of design and a variety of products ranging from furniture to lighting and accessories, under the principles of simplicity and honesty. By 2012, Raúl Durá, Ommar Uribe and Pedro Rivera, having acquired the necessary experience, they decided to create their own product editing company for habitat and contract, Omelette-ed, under a more humane and nearby perspective with emphasis on quality control.
The starting point for all of La Mamba’s work is a human experience. Their goal is to understand how people interact with objects and so dream up new forms and experiences in the world of homeware. La Mamba always strives to create user-friendly, imaginative, practical products. Known for their imaginative spirit, they always aim to create eye-catching objects that are useful in everyday life.
It’s hard to categorize La Mamba’s style because each one of them has a different personality with very different approaches to design. But the quintessence of what they’re about does become apparent and people easily recognize their product as theirs. Their restless desire to understand the relationship between people and objects reflected in the form of new products.
“Our work focuses basically on human experience behavior, concretely on the understanding of the recent ways of interacting between people and objects to create new forms and proposals in the world of furniture.”

The Pendulum Mirror is inspired by the pendulum and its movement, which made us consider an object that can be close and far away. We decided to apply this concept to an everyday object – a mirror, as it seemed like a fun way to move closer or further away from it. The marble base provides stability while a small, elegant handle acts as a tool to zoom in.
