The LEFF Amsterdam Story
LEFF Amsterdam was founded in 2011 by Arno Ruijzenaars to design and make beautiful objects...that also just happen to perform the useful function of telling time. The company's motto is "less of the same, more of the different," pointing to the company's dedication to mixing things up in the world of modern wall clocks and table clocks. This "time without limits" philosophy has attracted the talents of a variety of designers from both inside and out The Netherlands, each contributing their own unique vision to the LEFF Amsterdam catalogue of contemporary clocks.
Why We Love LEFF Amsterdam
As stated by founder Arno Ruijzenaars, "We believe that life’s too beautiful for dull design and boring basics. That’s why we founded LEFF Amsterdam: to make outspoken objects that tell time and light up their surroundings." Stylistically, the line of LEFF Amsterdam clocks are inspired by classic timepieces but are updated with unique fonts, materials and proportions that allow then to stand out in any setting. High-quality inner mechanisms combined with careful handcrafting ensure that you will enjoy telling the time for a very long time.
