founders lucas horne and pablo montero met while working together in the research and development department of a leading floor care brand, where they learnt a great deal about what a vacuum cleaner needs to do, but witnessed first-hand the unnecessary invention for invention’s sake and the consequential huge waste. lupe was founded to do something different.
lupe was founded in 2015 with the vision to solve the frustrations consumers were having with cordless vacuum cleaners that were becoming ever more popular but failing to deliver on expectations, both in performance and longevity. lupe’s philosophy is to innovate what we should do rather than what we could do. that means resilience not only against dirt and grime but also against changes in time and technology.
with a fresh outlook (and a clean sheet of paper) lupe was founded and the start of a five year journey began. through many hundreds of prototypes and testing, our team developed the patented suction intensifier technology to pick up dust more efficiently, and the unique lupe pure cordless platform to carry it.
whilst lupe began as an engineering challenge, we recognise the commercial realities of building a successful appliance brand. as a result, last year we began building a team of experienced individuals dedicated to the same core values that lupe was founded on and will continue to grow the team in line with our growth.
