Lékué and the Swiss designer Luki Huber have developed the Lékué by Luki Huber collection in order to unite functional design with the properties of Platinum Silicone. With this new range of kitchen utensils, Lékué and the designer focus on inproving, facilitating or reinventing well-known objects or processes for both the professional and home kitchen through the use of Platinum Silicone.
The Lékué by Luki Huber collection includes, amongst other products, a Steamer, a Ice cream Mould, a new generation Makisu and a Lemon Squeezer. It was precisely for the innovative and functional design of this last product that Lékué was given the Design & Innovation award at Madrid Fusión 2007.
Moreover, in October 2007, the Lemon squeezer received a new prize: the recognized Good Design Award (Japan), rewarded the advanced design, originality and the functional and ecological qualities of this product.
Trained at the Lucerne School of Art and Design (the Schule für Gestaltung Luzern) and the Escola Massana de Barcelona, Luki Huber has collaborated on a regular basis with such innovative firms as Lékué, elBulli, Cerabella and Xocoa from the design studio he created in Barcelona in 1999. From 2002 to 2005, he collaborated exclusively with the creative department at elBulli, experimenting with the rigours of gourmet cuisine and the innovations of industrial design. The results of this experiment were recently exhibited in the "D.Day, le Design Aujourd'hui" exhibition at the Pompidou Centre in Paris.
Luki Huber is currently professor of product design at the Eina school of Barcelona and he collaborates regularly with the R+D department at Lékué.
