Inspiration.
Breaking New Ground.

As a passionate eyewear designer, I was keen to create a completely new aesthetic. I also wanted to produce my distinctive style under an independent label. Then I came across the subject of „contrasts and hybrids“. What could be better than combining the old with the new? And the familiar with the future? And so I consistently applied this concept across all aspects of materiality, form and manufacture. For two years I worked on the collection’s concept and after various technical hurdles and modifications I am extremely thrilled to present my collection LEINZ Contemporary Eyewear Berlin.

Craft. Art and Passion.

Developing my brand LEINZ with its unusually courageous design approach builds on a wealth of experience. Following on from both a watchmaking and goldsmithing apprenticeship, I completed a university degree in design and art. This led to my yearlong collaborations as a designer for various international eyewear brands.

My most successful models and collections were created in the fashion house Prada and Miu Miu in Milan. From 2013, I developed a distinct and formative design for the then newly launched brand Yohji Yamamoto Eyewear, which quickly achieved considerable attention. Due to designing eyewear being my passion, I have repeatedly set industry trends by creating ground-breaking visions.
