UNO Magnetic is a growing collection of interactive, magnetic lifestyle accessories that people can transform into a virtually endless array of unique jewelry, accessories, and other personal adornments.
Founded by award-winning architect and interior designer Luis Pons in 2011, UNO Magnetic produces original, wearable and interactive magnetic objects in the form of jewelry (necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings) and accessories (belts, buckles and charms) for both men and women.
UNO Magnetic jewelry is made of a specially designed ball chain accompanied by a magnet or mix-and-match charms that can morph into an infinite number of wearable possibilities. It is stylish, interactive and comes in a variety of fun, playful colors – from pretty in pink, to tart lime green, sunflower yellow, shimmery silver and more. UNO Magnetic recently launched its reversible faux leather belts made with ten strong magnets to give a seamless look with the power of magnetic attraction. The belts come in a variety of solid colors acting as the blank canvas allowing the fun, playful, interactive and interchangeable buckles to create different looks.
Inspired by one of Pons’ first architectural projects in Miami: the Metal Rain Lamp, UNO Magnetic was created 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.
The company, which strives to engage in the creation of socially and environmentally responsible products, currently distributes its products in Europe, Asia, and the United States. UNO Magnetic is a member of the Fair Labor Association and it works to ensure all levels of manufacturing are free from abusive labor practices and pays all workers living wages. In addition, UNO Magnetic has partnered with important non-profit organizations, including Breast Health International in Italy and MTV’s Ashoka Partnership in the United States.

“I am interested in design that really speaks to people who want to engage in a conversation with it, design whose ultimate purpose is revealed by the user, design that allows for the possibility of change, design that touches the senses.” - Luis Pons
Luis Pons Design Lab is a conceptual design laboratory that operates from the assumption that experience is mutable. Everything is not just open to interpretation, everything is open to reinterpretation, and that doorway never closes. Founder Luis Pons expresses a delight in the potential of materials, spaces, and places to be more than simply inanimate recipients of admiration – he wants them to be touched and played with, fully experienced – he wants people to be fully engaged in their surroundings. As a result his architecture, interiors, installations, and furnishings have a dynamic energy that is unique. Inanimate objects come to life, acting as catalysts that invite people to discover more about themselves and their environment.
Rejecting the separation between buildings and their interiors, Luis Pons Design Lab designs from the inside out, thinking always in terms of systems. New systems emerge by taking objects out of their context and reintroducing them in surprising ways with a sense of humor, magic, and surprise. Form and function are mutated to reveal new meanings and interpretations of objects. In Luis Pons’ designs it is not just that things are not what they seem, sometimes, they are not even what they are.
From innocent exuberance to serenely understated sophistication, the thread in Pons’ work is respect for the integrity of materials as well as respect for location and the personality of the people who will live and play in the environments he creates.
