Welcome to Heal's
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. With engineers and carpenters on both sides of the family he was instinctively drawn to design, which he studied in Brisbane, Australia. He established his practice in 2003. From his studio in East London Pfeifer develops furniture and home accessories for design-led retail and contract markets. Pfeifer's style has been strongly influenced by the Modernist Movement. His designs follow pure and geometric form to produce 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.
Pfeifer believes that our values are reflected in the decisions we make, so it follows that the furniture we choose to live with, in part, defines us. As such, furniture and our belongings create a framework of values and choices that identify who we are. Pfeifer's work is motivated by the understanding that the challenge is 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.
Leonhard Pfeifer is committed to the notion of sustainability through quality. Furniture can last a lifetime, or many lifetimes. Quality is the key – quality in design, quality in manufacture, quality in materials, and quality in care. Furthermore, the aim where possible, is to use natural materials and processes to his create furniture. Working with manufacturers, Pfeifer investigates alternative materials and manufacturing processes that may lead to better ecological outcomes.
Leonhard Pfeifer has created an exclusive walnut and stained oak version of his Mini Bar for Heal's. The Mini Bar was launched at Now! Maison et Objet in 2007. It was part of the Winter 2008 Collection at the MoMA Store in New York. Pfeifer's practical and stylish Stash coffee table can also be found at Heal's rendered in natural oak.
His Decanter Pendant lights are made from lead crystal decanters sourced from antique markets and vintage shops. In 2 styles, the decanters are either left in their natural clear crystal or finished in polished gold.
