We eat in the kitchen and work at the desk. New habits of life and methods of communication shift the demands on the objects we surround ourselves with every day whose customary functions we have until now taken for granted. L&Z develops simple solutions for contemporary living and working situations, from paperweights, containers, luminaires to organizational systems and table trestles.
The central question of the manufactory is: How can a table, a shelf or a book remain plausible? Which new needs can be served? The goal is to develop utilitarian objects that intelligently adapt to and respond to this process while simultaneously maintaining production and material efficiency, an ergonomic design as well as high quality and beauty of form. L&Z was founded in 2011 by Daniel Lorch and Aidin Zimmermann in Berlin. Together with selected designers, the company develops and produces mobile and performance-oriented products for the modern workplace. In 2013, the Ed Rollcontainer received the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany.
