Leo Maher is a British designer currently based in the Netherlands. His work collects research from material cultures, past and present, and the narrative they present tethered to, before reformatting archives into new physical pieces. Often trying to respect one tool or material as an equivalent to the next, respecting the delicate mutuality and harmony as narratives, materials and techniques come together to form conglomerate objects; reincarnations of past selves.
Maher graduated Cum Laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven (BA) in 2021 and with Merit from Kingston School of Art (2017). His graduation project from the Design Academy ‘Unfamiliar Passions’ was nominated for the Melkweg Award for ‘outspoken talent’.
