Léo Schlumberger is a Paris-based designer, whose objects blend function with poetry. Besides creating beautiful pieces of art, Léo has a rich experience in creative industry.
He has taken numerous internship, working in different areas from press sale organisation to graphic design, for companies such as Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Aesop or L’Officiel, just to name a few. Although he is very multi-functional, we’d like to share with our audience Léo’s personal projects, which we found particularly interesting. Inspired by the orchestra of the natural and man-made elements that surround us, along with a strong determination to control every step of his projects, Léo is able to create stunning pieces which are truly unique.
When viewing Plongeoir — a piece made out of birtch wood, a huge amount of work that stands behind the final product cannot stay unnoticed. Then, there is Eidolôn — it resembles the reflection on still water. It was created mostly to admire, yet it has a function of intensifying light. Another project, titled Concave is a series of porcelain pourers - elegant and potent. The last project is Acer — a cutting instrument, made out of organic textures such as bone and wood.
