Originally from Spain, Sara Leonor moved to London in 2006 where she has worked as an interior designer and furniture maker ever since.
Her debut design the sculptural ‘Zeed’ chair, won her critical acclaim in 2010 and since then her work has continued to evolve. She now dedicates most of her time to designing artistic chairs of many shapes and colours that are inspired by geometric shapes.
Using a variety of materials such as wood, steel and acrylic, the results are unique shaped objects that are not only beautiful but serve as functional furniture.
We have had the pleasure of working with Sara for the last couple of years on some of her newest and most innovative designs.
Her latest project was an exercise of shapes, trying to make a chair that was very light and almost disappeared. The result is the stunning, eye-catching 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. Perfect for the summer to enhance any interior or outdoor area.
Sara’s technique is to first hand sketch her designs and then make miniature 3D printed prototypes. Selected designs are then manufactured as life size final products.
Laser cutting isn’t a new technique for Sara and she has been using it for her prototype models for the last 15 years. However, for her oTo and Bud chair series, it is the first time she has used laser cutting for an actual final product. And, she has told us that she is very happy with the results!
When asked about working with Swordfish she said, “Since I started working with you a couple of years ago I love how quickly you supply quotes and manufacture the actual orders. Your prices are very competitive and your attitude is excellent!”
Well, what more can we say, another happy customer – we couldn’t ask for more!
