Authentic design :: Select material :: Handcrafted to the finest touch
Hi! Thanks for visiting. I'm Jorge Rafael Moawad, the designer + craftsman of Luz de Mano. A natural instinct leads me to design and handcraft unique solutions for interesting needs, things we want to make special, use in a special way. Most of what you see here would never have been imagined on my own. Clients fuel a great amount of ideas through our interactions. The name 'Luz' - light, energy, spirit - acknowledges there's something greater than furniture at hand. And 'de Mano' means you know and trust the hands who made it. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

LdM Signature Frames
Inspired by all of you making art at home these days, introducing the LdM Art Frame. Whether for illustrations, watercolor, or fabric art, it’s a frame that encourages more art production because you can change out the art just by sliding the acrylic glass out the top. Made of premium quality Baltic birch plywood, unfinished. The “box” frame allows the art to “float” in the 3/4-inch space behind the acrylic glass. Metal pushpins included, but you can also use double-sided tape, clips, or your own creative solution. This display currently has no art, until a collaboration sparks with an illustrator, watercolor artist, or printmaker.
Amplify your favorite record cover art. Mix a vintage vibe with a modern beat. Let the music rattle the walls. Change the art, change the tempo. If the vinyl collector still likes to spin records, then this is the next big hit, because you can slide the record (cover and all) in and out of the frame without removing the frame from the wall.
Exhibit the true beauty of your photographs while adding a handsome, modern texture to your wall. The handcrafted hardwood brackets are modestly proportioned, thus reducing the material and limits of a frame. They hold prints pressed between two panes of glass. "Empty space," in a sense, frames the print, allowing the print to push unconventional dimensions. Featured here in birdseye maple. Also available in curly maple, Peruvian walnut, and American walnut.
Record Player Console
Got records? 100-120 records? Along with a turntable, amp/receiver, cd player, and woofer (sunk to the floor), they'll all groove together in LdM's original creation. What color or pattern would you choose for the back wall? Made of walnut hardwood and pine plywood. Available to order.
Record Player Tower
Cueing up the high vibe of minimal design with this new LdM original. 2 years since the release of LdM’s super deluxe Record Player Console, using the same material combo, walnut hardwood + layered birch plywood, and the same durable construction and finish. Stuff it with 140 records.
