We have had the pleasure of working with Sara for quite a few years now and have used laser cutting techniques on some of her most innovative designs.
Originally from Spain, Sara Leonor has worked as an interior designer and furniture maker in London since 2006.
Famed for her debut sculptural ‘Zeed’ chair, Sara designs artistic chairs of many shapes and colours. She is inspired by geometric shapes resulting in stunning, eye-catching chairs such as the oTo and Bud chairs in neon yellow and electric blue.
These chairs are extremely light with thin white frames that merge on a white background, enabling you to see through the frosted coloured acrylic seat and back rest.
Laser cutting isn’t a new technique for Sara’s designs and she has been using it for her prototype models for years. However, for her oTo and Bud chair series, it is the first time laser cutting was used for an actual final product.
Sara’s technique is to firstly hand sketch her designs and then make miniature 3D printed prototypes. From these prototypes she then selects designs that are then manufactured as life size final products.
