Australia-based design house Lepaar transforms prosaic products into objects of desire.
Lepaar’s collection of garden hoses, appropriately named the Gardenlust line, have handmade brass fittings and nozzles designed by Australian master coppersmith Louis Berczi. Hard-wearing recycled rubber and a custom manufacturer’s formula make the hoses flexible and resistant to kinks.
