Dave Leonard shows that construction and the material itself contains the beauty and requires no further adornment. His objects themselves originate from an exploration of the materials possibilities. By combining the natural characteristics with specific processing techniques, honest interior objects are created.

Piet Hein Eek has selected Dave Leonard van den Berg for his Young designers & Small studio exhibition during the Dutch Design Week 2015 & 2016. Before he became an independent producer, Dave worked for the Charlie Koolhaas Studio as well as other architect bureaus which are active not only in The Netherlands but also internationally. At present is he also involved with project development.

Dave Leonard is 32 years old (b.1984). Design and architecture has been his work and his research specialty since 2004 when he began his study of and research in architecture at the Technical University in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. He became an autodidact craftsman: that is, someone who designs and produces objects in his own workshop. 

Exploring the possibilities of suitable materials is an excellent source of inspiration: It leads to the design of a product which emerges through its interaction with his fingers. De essence of that product has already been studied: unnecessary elements are eliminated so that only when necessary other elements are added. In the resulting product such elements are an integral part; they receive just as much attention as the other elements.
