Leonhard Pfeifer has a passion for contemporary furniture. The son of an antique restorer, Pfeifer's was a childhood immersed in traditional European and colonial furniture. Pfeifer’s work is motivated by challenge to develop appropriate solutions relevant to people, but where the function, form, materials and manufacturing come together – elegantly. The goal is to create honest designs, with simple function and a clean style. Inherent elegance is always a requirement, with the intent to define novel ideas, leading to innovative solutions.
In 2003 Pfeifer established his studio in London working on furniture and home accessories for design-led retail and contract markets. His style produces minimal compositions with fine detail intrinsic to the work. Having worked across a range of design industries including consultancy, R & D and manufacturing, Pfeifer has a wide scope of experience and a pragmatic approach to furniture design.
