“UNO® was born from my desire to make the world of high design accessible to as many people as possible so everyone can share in its inspiration and use it as a tool to change the world,” said Pons, an award-winning designer and principal of the Luis Pons Design Lab and the creative mind behind Uno Magnetic. Uno Magnetic is growing collection of interactive magnetic objects designed to attract the extraordinary and inspire freedom and playfulness.
