Just imagine‌ Imagine you were given complete freedom and there were no limits to what you could do. How would you design your interior? At Leolux, we are convinced that people feel happiest with furniture that is fully compatible with their personal views of lifestyle and well-being. That you yourself want to design your own interior with the most beautiful elements, design tailored to your personal preferences. Standard products are not part of this scenario.

And this high-quality Leolux furniture is not only comfortable – it is also produced sustainably. Which goes without saying. This annual, with beautiful illustrations by artist Olaf Hajek, depicts the world of family business Leolux and our ideas about design and craftsmanship.

Everything to order

Manufactured for you personally

Everybody has a different idea of the perfect furniture. That is why we make your furniture to order, tailored to your personal wishes and requirements. The design and dimensions of our furniture are fixed. The rest is up to you. Leather or fabric, lacquer and stitch colours, but also comfort options or adjustment functions, for example. You can choose them all yourself. Needless to say, Leolux will help you in every possible way.

In balance at L ­ eolux

High-tech and craftsmanship Anyone observing the production at ­Leolux will see with how much craftsmanship each piece of furniture is produced.

Leolux annual 2017 - 2018

The unique combination of experience, expertise and high-tech makes it possible to make hundreds of unique products every day.

Leolux

It is an impressive sight: scores of people working together on one order. They build the bodies, stitch the covers and upholster your sofa or armchair expertly. It is all manual work, which has to be delivered faultlessly. But high-quality technology is just as unmissable, and

not only in the product development or logistics. Each piece of furniture covers long distances via conveyor belts and innovative techniques ease the work of the leather cutters.

Only this unique combination of experience, expertise and high-tech makes it possible to make hundreds of unique products every day. Over eighty years, ­Leolux has found the perfect balance here with its employees, the L ­ eolux family in Venlo.

People with Leolux in their heart

We will create your seating idea

Yes, they do still exist! Real familyowned companies, where people work on your order with passion and craftsmanship. The Leolux people in Venlo make high-quality designer furniture completely to your specific needs. Because at Leolux you choose the ingredients and the colours that we are then allowed to work into your furniture. At Leolux, we believe this is the only way to make your home dreams come true.

Leolux annual 2017 - 2018

Roger, cushion maker ‘Leolux furniture is strong on the inside and soft on the outside. We use the best foam types to build the comfort layer by layer. That’s how we create the unique Leolux sitting experience.’

Leolux

Marga, upholstery cutter

Bart, frame builder ‘The frame is the basis of every item of furniture and it should never break. That is why the parts are not stapled to each other, as is the case with cheap furniture. A real Leolux item of furniture has glued woodworking joints. Solid and creak-free.’

‘Leather is a beautiful natural product. It shows you exactly what an animal has gone through during its life. I select the best parts, based on my years of working with materials. Our computer-operated machines then cut them out of the skins. Quickly and accurately. We have been using machines to cut textiles for a long time. Patterned fabrics are an exception, as we cut them completely by hand at Leolux so that the beautiful patterns are also neatly integrated into your furniture.’

11


Jutka, seamstress ‘At the Leolux factory in Hungary, my colleagues and I make sure that the outside of your furniture looks perfect. We use the most beautiful decorative seams, either ton-sur-ton or in contrasting colours. Every item of furniture and type of material is different and involves its own challenges. That makes my work very varied and interesting.’

Modern products, carefully crafted

Math, upholsterer ‘All the different parts of your piece of furniture come together on my upholstery table. I’m very strict about the quality. Anything that’s not right is sent straight back. That’s how I create your Leolux sofa; a modern product, carefully crafted with old-fashioned quality.’

12


‘This is where all the components come that need to be lacquered or stained: table-tops, but also arm-rests and legs. Where possible, we use powder lacquers or water-based lacquers. They’re easier to work with and less harmful to the environment.’

Hans, lacquer specialist

Leolux

Twan, driver ‘Over the years, we’ve learned how to transport furniture without damaging it, so we never leave the transport to others. My colleague and I take care of all those things, and we use a clean truck that’s as environmentally friendly as possible.’

Peter, after sales specialist ‘Mistakes are made wherever people are working. Always. But the customer shouldn’t be the one to suffer, which is why Leolux gives a long-term guarantee. I solve any problems that come up. If possible, at the customer’s home. At Leolux, we always discuss service issues in detail. I try to make sure that we get closer and closer to perfection.’

Designers & L ­ eolux

Conceivers of a distinctive collection Bringing people from all kinds of creative disciplines together is the real strength of L ­ eolux. Craftsmen, artists, stylists and photographers, they all play a role. But the process begins in the mind of the freelance designer, the visionary who gives shape to his dreams about living.

Frans Schrofer

­ eolux works together with a large numL ber of freelance designers. Every one of them has his or her own background and a different vision about the world around them. What they all have in common is that the final result is what counts. From the sum of their creative contributions comes a pluriform collection that is nonetheless recognizable at once in the distinctive shapes and the characteristic ­Leolux handwriting: a refined finish, high comfort and a colourful presentation. A designer does not work in a vacuum. He stands at the heart of the world, looks around himself, travels and explores. A designer is sensitive to trends and to the way we live. He lets himself be inspired and he translates all those impulses into new ideas. And the products that best reflect the spirit of the times remain valuable to people for a long time. You might say they acquire a touch of eternity.

Christian Werner

The designer and the product developers at L ­ eolux get down to work together to make a product from the first sketch that meets the criteria that L ­ eolux sets for a piece of furniture. Sometimes they need to make a concession on the shape for the sake of the comfort. Another time, the design might be adjusted for a better construction or to stop the price getting out of hand. But the designer’s basic idea, his expert vision on comfortable seating, remains untouched in that interaction.

The real Leolux comfort

Sitting comfortably, a question of details We have made it our mission: to make sitting a pleasant experience. Because however creative and durable a design is, without the right comfort no sofa at all will make your living dreams come true. Three elements are definitive to the high comfort in Leolux furniture: expert product development, good materials and an eye for detail. On every piece of Leolux furniture, those things enjoy our full attention in order to realise the grand cru among furniture for you.

Product development There’s more to furniture than a good design. The product developers from Leolux translate the designer’s dream into a real sofa with the comfort you expect. The study of the human anatomy forms

16

the starting point thereby. Active sitting needs a fairly large seat height, high armrests and a smaller angle between the seat and the back, the so-called rake. It’s easier to stand up from a seat like that. The more passive the seat is, the more difficult it is to stand up; the seat is lower and deeper, the back has more rake and the armrests are lower. As soon as the dimensions and proportions of the furniture match the human dimension (ergonomics) and the function of the furniture, the basis has been laid for comfortable sitting.


Leolux annual 2017 - 2018

Technology and materials

Leolux

Without solid construction, a sofa is going to display flaws over time. That is why the inside of the furniture is perhaps even more important than the outside for Leolux. The beech wood of the construction parts is costly, but strong and easy to work on. The glued joints make a Leolux frame virtually indestructible. The building of quality bodies is a specialism that Leolux has mastered from the outset. The choice of the springing and the right foam is also work for experts. The comfort is built up layer by layer by combining foams with different levels of stiffness with one another. That’s how the ultimate sitting experience is realised for each piece of furniture.

Eye for detail

­ he product developers T translate the designer’s dream into a real sofa

In our vision, comfort is more than just a physical experience. The eye wants something too, so subtle details play an important role in the perception of your furniture. That’s why we look for the loveliest embroidery, pay a lot of extra attention to the form of the feet and take another good look at the rounding of the cushions. Only when everything’s right will a piece of furniture join the Leolux collection. With the right construction, the best materials and the loveliest details, it is here in this book for you to discover and make your living dreams come true.

At the back of this annual, you will find more information about how to make your furniture even more comfortable, but also an explanation of the icons we use.

Distinctive design, durable by nature and provided with superb comfort. The ­Leolux collection offers a broad assortment of seating ideas with a signature all of their own. You see it in the fine finishing, you feel it when you sit down. This is a genuine ­Leolux! In this book you will get acquainted with the world of ­Leolux: from lovely living furniture to artistic eye-catchers. We do in fact give you a few suggestions for the covering and the colour, but ultimately you yourself decide which furniture we will be allowed to build to order for you. Those are choices that make life more enjoyable!


Bellice

Design: Beck Design, 2017 (Chair: Cantate / Footstool: Amulet / Coffee table: Iduna)

Without a doubt, Bellice is one of the most complete Leolux products ever. And the most cleverly designed at the same time. Bellice has a completely modular structure, even though it’s not visible at first sight. And that structure gives you the freedom to choose almost any format. From very modest to very opulent. Sofas or corner sofas, with countless additional segments, bases, arm variants and comfort options. You determine the look with your choice of upholstery and the colour of the decorative seam, or the options for the arms: high or low, narrow or wide. Unlike most sofas, the starting point for every choice you make is the desired seating space. So a broader arm doesn’t make the sofa smaller but more spacious; exactly as intended. So you design the sofa, and the people at Leolux will build it for you. Using exactly the materials, colours and dimensions that appeal to you most. You can find more information on page 162

Iduna

Design: Beck Design, 2017

Natural shapes and materials create a feeling of tranquillity in your living room because they exude softness and quality. That is what you notice straight away in the Iduna coffee tables. The tapered wooden feet support the tabletop, which is made of marble or solid oak. Large or small, in a high or low model for the loveliest combinations. Attention: Marble is a natural material. Colour and texture vary by product. You can find more information on page 169

About the designers

Norbert & Silja Beck (D) Because there are already so many designs, a design must include eye-catching details that attract and hold the customer’s attention. That is why Norbert and Silja Beck (1959/1967) want their designs to have a practical added value, a strong character and a good story.

Cantate

Design: Frans Schrofer, 2017 (Sofa: Bellice / Footstool: Amulet / Coffee table: Prismo)

On a lovely weekend morning, this is the place you dreamed of, where you can hold onto that feeling of complete relaxation for just a few moments longer. Cantate is a compact club chair that surrounds and supports your body. Beautifully finished on the back with the “Artisan” decorative stitch. The smart swivel foot automatically returns to the start position when you leave the chair. And whatever you do, don’t forget to experience the softness of the upholstery materials. Leather, fabric, or both, in a composition that you create yourself. You can find more information on page 165

Prismo

Design: Edward van Vliet, 2017

A cube that transforms into a circle. It makes the Prismo tables visually interesting. And then there is the balance – that is, the refined synthesis between the slender frame and the ceramic table-top. Timeless design for interiors created with love and care.

About the designer

Christian Werner (D) 'Emotion is the driving force behind every choice that people make. I’m convinced that consumers choose products that make them feel good.

Paleta

Design: Christian Werner, 2015 (Chair: Caruzzo / Coffee table: Ninfea)

A world lies at your feet, ready for you to shape it to suit your ideas on taste, interiors and life. Paleta is your home, your workroom, a place to relax. A broad landscape that offers a warm welcome to friends and family whenever they drop in. Large covered seat bottoms form the basis for Paleta, a rich programme of sofas that you colour to suit you. With luxuriant low or adjustable high cushions and sideboards in various sizes, Paleta is also available without the soft armrests. That gives you the opportunity to create space for an oak table leaf to integrate your side table into your sofa. In many of his furniture designs, designer Christian Werner chooses trapezoid shapes and round angles. We see them here too. They lend Paleta an appearance so characteristic of the designs from Werner: discreet, soft and friendly. You can find more information on page 172

Ninfea

Design: Stephan Veit, 2015

Ninfea is very flexible. The three round tabletops, all available separately in lacquer or solid oak, revolve around a point that the designer has positioned just off-centre. So you revolve each table-top for as long as it takes to find the configuration you need. You can find more information on page 171

Caruzzo

Design: Frans Schrofer, 2015 (Coffee table: Ninfea / Occasional table: Griffo)

Caruzzo is a swivel armchair made just for you. It boasts a high back for your privacy and traditional upholstery details to ensure that Caruzzo is a feast for the eyes. The striking embroidered seam on the back of the seat is handmade by Leolux craftsmen. It looks fantastic of course in a contrasting colour. With Caruzzo, Frans Schrofer created a high-backed armchair of great class, with plenty of attention to design and ergonomics. And because functional design is in our blood, Leolux has added a clever mechanism so you define how actively or passively you want to sit. Collection

A safe haven at home

Oscar

Design: Christian Werner, 2013 (Armchair: Scylla)

A real ­Leolux sofa is a place full of wellbeing, a home like a safe haven. Take our hospitable Oscar for example. The downy soft nonchalance of its covering resembles a warm blanket. Its soft armrests pamper not only the arms, but also your head if you choose to lie back on it. The true connoisseur sees at once that ­Leolux knows how feet can serve as jewels. And the refined finishing of the seams and piping is almost haute couture, worthy of an Oscar. You can find more information on page 171

Ponton Next Design: Braun&Maniatis, 2008/2014 (Chair: Pallone)

Slide, rotate, move together and apart. Anything goes with Ponton. The cubistic elements with rotating backs invite endless experimentation. The high-quality gas spring mechanism makes it easy. One of you wants to stretch out with a book while the other prefers a movie? No problem, because with Ponton everyone creates the sitting moment they want, even on the same piece of furniture. Slide the elements together to become a corner sofa or rotate the backrest to create a chaise longue. Or even better: place two chaise longues next to each other. From now on, there are no more battles for the most comfortable spot on the sofa. You both have one! You can find more information on page 173

Julita

Design: Jan Armgardt, 2014 (Coffee table: Liliom)

Nature for Leolux is a source of endless inspiration. From shapes that never tire and the purest materials come timeless products that remain relevant over generations. Julita’s gentle lines are borrowed straight from nature. The pen of master-designer Jan Armgardt sketched out the most elementary lines: softly flared arms and a covering with elegant details that lend Julita her subtlety. The high back offers a sense of security, while the curved legs seem to sprout from under the seat like branches of a tree. As pure as nature, a friendship for years. Julita from Leolux.

Leolux through the eyes of Edward van Vliet

Joining Worlds In January 2017, Leolux presented the new collection by the well-known designer, Edward van Vliet, at the International Interiors Show in Cologne. Edward van Vliet has also started working for Leolux as its Strategic Creative Director, in addition to his role as a designer. The aim of this long-term partnership is to enhance the quality of the presentation of the Leolux collection worldwide. Two worlds joining together.

The permanent ingredients that together form ‘the world of Leolux’ - craftsmanship, comfort, and quality, produced to order have remained unchanged for years. As an ambitious company, however, Leolux is always looking for new ways of further strengthening its team and collection. Its partnership with the internationally renowned Edward van Vliet goes a long way towards achieving that ambition. Gisella Groenewoud, the Art Director at Leolux, is very encouraged by the initial results: “To help shape the collection and

42

the identity, we work very closely with external designers and artists, but we found that we also needed more consistency in colour and materials. The decision to appoint Edward was an excellent one. He has extensive experience as an art director for other brands. That has given him an international perspective of interior design and a real feeling for style, colours, patterns and textiles. And now, by stepping into Leolux’s shoes, he has come up with a master plan that perfectly suits our brand.”

To make the experiences complete, Van Vliet created a series of his own designs for the Leolux world - soft textile products, like cushions, plaid blankets and carpets, and a number of footstools and small tables. They all exude elegance and style, elevating the collection to an even higher level on the international stage.

The Leolux stand at the International Furniture Fair in Cologne (IMM) About the designer

Edward van Vliet Edward van Vliet, who was born in 1965, graduated from the Academy for Industrial Design (the present-day Design Academy Eindhoven) in 1989. Since 1990, he has run Studio Edward van Vliet, an international design organisation that works under contract for private individuals, museums, hotels, resorts, and offices. By combining the disciplines of design, architecture and lifestyle, he can create complete worlds in which every aspect of the interior is paid equal attention. From furniture to lighting and from floors to ceilings: for Van Vliet it’s all about the total experience, about storytelling. Edward van Vliet works for well-known brands like Moooi, Bisazza, Rosenthal, and Moroso.

Edward van Vliet collection 2017

Quality & class Elegant, pure, and refined. Edward van Vliet’s designs touch exactly the right chord among lovers of contemporary interiors. In particular, it is the graceful way in which the warm fabrics fall and the soft lustre of the materials. And Van Vliet’s exquisite taste, which he uses to create such subtle combinations. The products in the Edward van Vliet collection are a treasured possession. Very contemporary, but also with a timeless sense of class. Prismo

Polaris

Amulet

The three motifs on these cushions and plaid blankets are inspired by the Japanese “Sashiko” embroidery technique.

The octagonal Amulet is both a footstool and a side-table. With facets on top and underneath, or only underneath, and refined accents. In two sizes and various heights.

The history of Leolux

Eighty years of visionary craftsmanship Leolux is a dynamic company with a keen vision on design and the future. But this modern organisation boasts a long history. For eight decades now, Leolux has been creating its thought-provoking design in the south of the Netherlands, whereby it has chosen the path of evolution. Innovative and calm growth, steady and with a clear vision.

Quality and ambition can allow a tiny business to grow and become a player on a global scale. The founders of Leolux probably don’t realise that when they start doing business in 1934 under the name “Zuid Nederlandse Clubmeubelfabriek”. With only a handful of employees they build classic Dutch furniture in the southern Netherlands. The brothers Ton and Jan Sanders buy the factory just after World War II. Interested as they are in design from Scandinavia and Italy, they set

46

a new course in the mid-fifties, which will ultimately turn out to be highly successful. The modern line will be called Leolux, luxury furniture from the lion (Leo in Latin) in the coat of arms of ZNC. Over the next ten years, the furniture becomes increasingly innovative and creative, as is the way in which it’s presented. In 1964, Leolux opens its first Design Center in Utrecht. These inspiring information centres support the Leolux partners with non-binding information for the consumer.


Leolux annual 2017 - 2018 Collection

A new generation takes the helm at the beginning of the eighties. Jeroen Sanders and his business partner Johan van Beek add even more refinement to the budding success formula of Leolux. The photography, the advertisements and the designs become more daring, colourful and challenging. From now on, art becomes an element of the pluriform collection. Leolux becomes image-defining in Europe, extends the Design Center concept to Germany and Belgium and grows further to become a global player with a modern factory in Venlo where high-tech and tradition are combined and a splendid visitors’ center, Via Creandi, where consumers can see for themselves how Leolux furniture is produced by craftsmen.

Leolux and art

Collaboration with a long history For decades, Leolux has believed that the interaction between artists, designers and craftspeople is one of the driving forces behind creativity. Sjer Jacobs

In the early 1970s, Leolux organised the first exhibitions in its Design Centers, which in those days were still called showrooms. It was often local artists who were given the chance to show their work at Leolux. Leolux’s interest was aroused and the company tried to sign longerterm contracts. Artists were given a say in the design of the Leolux annuals and were occasionally even involved in the design of furniture. The “house artist” was born, and in the early 1990s art became a permanent part of the Leolux DNA.

Henk van der Vet

Over the past few decades, a number of artists have played a leading role in Leolux’s imagery and their influence is still visible. Clemens Briels

Wouter Stips

Anchored in history The first person to bear the title of house artist was Henk van der Vet (1939). In the early 1990s, Leolux illustrated its annuals with his “photographics”. In this art form, which he bases on photography, Van der Vet combines several different techniques. He calls it “Painting with photography”. From 1996, it was the turn of Clemens Briels (1946). For the first time, this was a clear case of creative interplay. Not only did Briels’ give his work the theme “sitting”, he also became actively involved in the design of furniture and fabrics. Jo Meesters

Briels’ colourful but abstract work was followed by the much less abstract “people” of Sjer Jacobs (1963). The bony figures are friendly personalities to which the viewer quickly feels connected. Sjer illustrated the Leolux annuals and produced a wide range of work both in ceramics and on canvas. His distinctive

figures in steel wire can now be seen in the Leolux sculpture garden at the Venlo production branch. Leolux and artist Wouter Stips (1944) began working together in 2005. For several years, his “world full of beauty and unique objects” was the guiding principle behind the advertising campaigns, he illustrated several annuals and his work decorated the facades of a number of Leolux buildings, including the Design Center in Krefeld (D) and the Via Creandi Visitors' Centre in Venlo (NL). In 2013, the collaboration with Jane Worthington (1969) began. For three years, her colourful paintings defined the look of the Leolux stands at trade fairs as well as the Leolux website, annuals and brochures. That role was taken over in 2016 by Olaf Hajek, the eighth Leolux house artist.

Eighth artist-in-residence

Olaf Hajek brings the annual to life What began in 1974 as a small initiative to allow regional artists to exhibit in the Leolux Design Center Eindhoven has grown into a creative marriage between art and design.

The artists-inresidence play an important part in the Leolux philosophy, driving the creativity and not least creating the context in which Leolux presents its furniture. From 2016, the eighth artist-in-residence, Olaf Hajek (1965), will be providing the illustrations for the Leolux print products such as this annual, and the key decorative elements for exhibition stands, Design Centers and shops. Hajek thus complements the world of Leolux. Artist and illustrator, Olaf Hajek is a sought-after visual artist. His colourful work can be found all over the world: in galleries and museums, on city maps and on the covers of books and magazines such as The Financial Times, Rolling Stone, Vogue and The Wall Street Journal. However, it is his advertising illustrations that have brought him global fame. His clients include Daimler Chrysler, Nike, Apple, Bacardi and Hermès. In 2016, Leolux joined the ranks of those associated with the artist.

50

Olaf Hajek is best described as a very international artist. After training as a graphic designer in Düsseldorf, he moved to Amsterdam where he established the first contacts on which his subsequent worldwide success would be based. “At that time, 22 years ago, Amsterdam was an affordable and creative city. It was also familiar territory because I had lived in the Netherlands for several years when I was younger. I moved to Berlin a few years later. For me, it is without doubt the city I want to live in. It is completely different from other German cities, with its own rules. Berlin is a metropolis with different areas, each of which has its own character. Another advantage: instead of bankers and lawyers, there are more artists, writers and startups. All people who turn their own passion into creativity.”

Olaf Hajek (Germany, 1965)

Unlike many other illustrators, Hajek’s paintings are still completely ‘artisanal’. Not using a computer, but a paintbrush and acrylic paint, often on paperboard or wood. In his work, the structures, the backgrounds, are just as important as the images in the foreground. The many cultural influences in his work reveal how

well travelled Hajek is. Olaf Hajek: “I work for clients in South America, the US, Asia and Europe. For the last 15 years, I have also been going to South Africa every year where I paint for a few months for a gallery which sells my work there. The culture and aesthetics of that country have always been a great source of inspiration to me.”

Its designers endowed Gynko with softly rounded forms, lovely details and clever dimensions, so you can make distinctive modular combinations with them. And then there’s the function of the arms: fold them up completely to lean comfortably against them or fold them down completely for a tidy look. Gynko is a technical highlight that fits perfectly with Leolux, but is also a really distinctive design, a shape with humour.

About the designer

Jane Worthington (UK) At art college, she decided to switch from painting to design. But her love for painting didn’t diminish. Jane Worthington (1969) is now active in both areas for Leolux. She began her career as a furniture designer in 1998 with the organic Balou armchair. From 2013 to 2015, she created a number of eye-catching artworks as Leolux’s house artist.

Pallone

Design: Boonzaaier/Mazairac/de Scheemaker, 1989

A real eye catcher, with timeless forms and a long history. Conceived by Roy de Scheemaker as a floating cushion, inspired by the world of the science fiction cartoon. Pallone was originally designed for the ‘house of the future�. Over a quarter of a century later, Pallone is both futuristic and fun, but now also completely understandable. With the comfort of today in three sizes (large, medium and small) and with a luxurious, neutral or colourful finish. The special Pallone Paradise series is inspirational, with combinations for which our experts were inspired by the wonderful colours of the bird kingdom. You can find more information on page 173

Background

Pallone: icon with a long history The colourful Pallone sitting ball was designed for the “House of the Future�. That is why its designer gave it a look that was far ahead of its time. Futuristic and therefore a perfect fit for the technical gadgets displayed in the Dutch museum of the future. Just a few decades later, Pallone has become a Leolux icon. And is still as quirky as it always was.

60


A whole family The Pallone design has easily stood the test of time. With minor adjustments that have further strengthened its playful shape. Over the years, two new family members were added to Pallone: the medium-sized Ma-lone and the small Lill’One, so that there is now a Pallone with suitable dimensions for every user.

A taste of paradise Pallone is both timeless and trendy. The curved lines almost beg for colourful combinations. The shapes have also

Collection

The iconic Pallone lends itself excellently to special projects. They are painted by artists, abstracted into decorative elements and transformed until they tell a completely new story. For instance, in 2009 a group of young artists was challenged to express their vision on the Leolux Pallone. The idea is to exhibit the works in the Kunstpaviljoen Museum (Nieuw Roden), the co-organiser, and then to auction them off. The money raised is for the Pink Ribbon Foundation that collects money for research into breast cancer.

stirred the imagination of Leolux’s colour specialists. Through the years, they have designed a number of different series to inspire the enthusiasts. The most recent series is Pallone Paradise: eight combinations inspired by the vibrant colours of the bird kingdom. Artist Olaf Hajek is responsible for the visual translation. He paints the birds in their natural habitat. The well chosen three-coloured upholstery ensures that the futuristic armchair from 1989 can still proudly take its place in the interiors of the present day.

Parabolica by Coen For 20 years, Artist Coen Blankwaard (1965) has been drawing pictures of all the events in his life in small black notebooks.

The painting was turned into a furniture fabric that serves as the basis for this exclusive Parabolica art edition.

About the designer

Jan Armgardt (D) He believes it is immoral to throw away an item of furniture after a few years just because it is worn or old-fashioned. That is why Armgardt (1947) aims for sustainability and experiments with materials. He believes that paper is the material of the future. Jan Armgardt has been designing for Leolux since 1974. Many of his creations have turned out to be timeless: Tango, Volare and Papageno, for example.

Mayon: the name is reminiscent of other cultures, is exotic and sublime, God-like. You recognise the refinement in the compact Mayon at first glance. You see it in the organically curved rounding of the arms and back, in the sprung armrest, the perfect line of the aluminium feet that flows into the stitching on the front and in the exclusive upholstery in back and arm elements.

Factory tour

Walk the road of creation What could be lovelier than watching a fine product being created in the hands of people? Leolux enjoys opening the doors of its factory in Venlo to anyone wanting to experience how our furniture is produced to order.

The start and finish of the tour is the inspiring visitors’ center Via Creandi, literally “the road of creation.” After the reception and a film telling you about our family business, former employees with many years of Leolux experience escort you over the catwalks through the factory. From above, they offer a perfect view over the production departments. The tour around the factory also gives you a glimpse of Leolux’ rich history, taking the visitor through the museum showing the finest memories of eighty years of Leolux design. You don’t need to worry about missing anything, because you can always hear your guide over the headphones. So you get an entirely personal explanation of the production process, can ask questions and experience the tricks of the trade at first hand. And if you’ve recently ordered a piece of Leolux furniture from your dealer, you may even come across it during the tour. A unique opportunity to get to know the makers of your seating idea.

76

About the Visitors’ Center Via Creandi is a dream long cherished at Leolux. The idea: show those interested that Leolux really exists and that traditional skills and craftsmanship have not vanished from Western Europe. The building of a new logistics centre is the right moment to make the dream reality. The Via Creandi visitors centre opened to the public in the autumn of 2007. The building is based on the design by Amsterdam architects Soeters van Eldonk. A characteristic red bridge links the existing production facility with a new logistics center and adjoining warehouse, in which Leolux also accommodates its visitors center. Here, with a fantastic view across the Meuse, visitors are introduced to the world as Leolux sees it: modern and hospitable, with a feel for the arts.

The Leolux Design Centers

Seeing, feeling, experiencing Eindhoven

A visit to a Leolux Design Center can really help you decide what you want. There, you can discover the world that Leolux imagines: a beautiful and inspiring world full of wonderful interiors.

It is also an artistic world in which you are introduced to the work of the Leolux house artists. But most of all, it is a world in which you can feel at home, a world in which you experience what Leolux means by comfort.

Interior design in 3D You can assess our quality objectively, but the experience itself, the act of sitting, is pure emotion. In our Design Centers, you can experience that to the full. You can feel the texture of the fabrics, smell the leather and see how our lacquers can enhance an item of furniture. Our advisers can you tell you everything you need to know about the comfort options that every item of furniture has to offer. With our handy “Creator”, we can show you how the furniture of your choice will look and you can use our 3D recommendations for

comprehensive interior advice. As part of this process, we draw your living room in our computer, complete with Leolux furniture, to give you an accurate impression of your new interior.

Take your time You only find out whether an item of furniture is actually comfortable to sit in after you have sat in it a number of times. So take all the time you need to try it out. Would you like to bring your children? No problem. They will enjoy themselves too, while you take the time to look around the Leolux Design Center.

PLEASE NOTE: Good interior advice takes time. That is why we ask you to make an appointment in advance. And don’t forget to take photographs, floorplans and colour samples with you! Addresses and opening times: pages 180-182.

About the designer

Gerard Vollenbrock (NL) Greece is an important source of inspiration for designer Gerard Vollenbrock (1949). In his studio on the island of Serifos, he works out his ideas into sketches and working drawings. This is also how he designed his successful Scylla, which is named after a nymph in a Greek saga. However, his Dutch background and his penchant for Stijl and Bauhaus design are very evident in his designs.

What’s more, they give the design an extra function: by rotating the backrests. Horatio changes from a sofa for sitting comfortably on into a splendid chaise longue for moments of total relaxation. The precious finishing with visible aluminium elements lends the design an unforgettable look. It makes Horatio a seating idea of unrivalled richness that unites the designer’s refinement perfectly with the craftsmanship of ­Leolux. You can find more information on page 169

The charm of genuine leather Leather is a natural product that lives with its owner. Just like a pair of shoes or a wallet that takes on the form of its owner over time and to which you become increasingly attached.

The same applies to the leather on your furniture too. The leather attracts a patina, maybe a scratch here and there and it will display a little wrinkling; it has lived, lived with you. That is the charm of nature, the charm of real leather.

How do you recognise Leolux leather? There is a multitude of leather qualities in the world and not all are good. As a result, the origin of furniture leather is often unclear and it is not always evident what you can expect from it. At Leolux, however, we are very clear: Leolux selects only the very best European cowhides for its furniture. Hides of a lesser quality are not accepted, so when choosing Leolux leather, you are always choosing a reliable product. Now take our basic leather: beautiful cowhide, strong and user-friendly, which you can use for virtually anything. Do you also have a taste for

102

beautiful things? Then Leolux has a fabulous selection of luxurious leathers. They require a little extra attention, just as an expensive port or crystal glass does, but then you also get a lot more back. The best of two worlds? That’s possible too, because despite their rich appearance, the top quality leathers Arkadia and Ceras are smooth to touch, come in a beautiful pallet of colours and are user friendly - although a little careful treatment is, of course, recommended. In the production of our leather, we place strict demands on our suppliers: the quality must, of course, be very high, but also entirely constant. We demand optimum monitoring of the tanning process and we set high standards for environmental protection. Before we start working with a new supplier, we first check whether that tannery can meet our strict requirements. Can they always deliver on time,


company philosophy and are explained in their ecological reporting. These Italian leather tanneries continually participate in green projects, including a more environmentally friendly way to tan leather and a process to remove the hair from the hides without using sulphide. Such projects represent a major step towards producing greener leather. The types of leather that they produce are carefully certified, by among others the well-known German ecolabels ‘Der blaue Engel’ and ‘Golden M’. By making such efforts, these Leolux partners guarantee the trusted origin of our leather.

Lovely leather and a lovelier world

Clean production checks Leolux buys its leather from suppliers that meet the requirements of the ecolabel “Der Blaue Engel”. By doing so, we can make a relevant contribution to a safer and cleaner world. This is once again a step on the path to the maximum achievable: products that place a minimum burden on the environment. For all producers of Leolux leather, the rule is that they must be REACH-proof. REACH stands for “Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals”. This European regulation requires suppliers of chemical products (for example for tanning and finishing of leather) to establish with ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency in Finland, what ingredients they contain. The leather producers with whom Leolux works only use such registered products, so what substances are used in the production of our leather is completely transparent.

Collection

Some of Leolux’s most important suppliers of high-quality upholstery are the leather specialists Pasubio, Rino Mastrotto and Dani. Three companies based in beautiful northern Italy which are, just like Leolux, family businesses. As a player on the world market in leather for, among other things, furniture, bags and the automotive market, they enforce strict standards when preparing their high-quality leather. Innovation and certification are fully embedded in the

Leolux annual 2017 - 2018

for example, do they have enough knowhow in-house and do they possess sufficient innovative capacity? Afterwards we create a “custom made” leather collection with such a producer, because in order to get the finest grades of leather with a constant high quality, you need to be sure of the origin of the cattle, how the animals were cared for, the selection of the right weight classes and the choice of male or female animal. But these are only a few of the factors that play a role. Managing the details is essential in putting together a top collection that meets the high demands that Leolux sets.

Leolux works with the loveliest ingredients However, the design, the chosen level of comfort and the properties of natural leather make puckering unavoidable. The specific level of comfort means that after a time, some Leolux models lose their initially rather severe appearance and appear more natural (the puckering) and show the traces of use associated with a natural product. In addition, certain surfaces can in time display a natural degree of puckering, which shows that ‘leather lives’ and that its user enjoys living with this piece of Leolux furniture.

Upholstery materials

The Leolux quality fabrics Well-known branded fabrics form the foundation of the Leolux fabric collection, an extensive and carefully selected range of high-quality upholstery fabric. Manufacturers such as Kvadrat, De Ploeg and Fanny Aronsen supply woven fabrics that have proven themselves on the market. From their ranges, Leolux has selected the best quality fabrics and chosen a contemporary range of colours. In addition, Leolux offers the “Calata” fabrics. The range includes a large number of high-quality fabrics that are produced exclusively for Leolux. Leolux is closely involved in the selection of the fabrics, so they fit seamlessly with the other covering materials in terms of colour and feel. So it’s easy for you to put the loveliest combinations together, and that helps you in the process of choosing your furniture.

The seductive power of fabrics

Man-made fibres

When choosing a fabric, the characteristics of that fabric play an important role. That is why we include an explanation here of the most common basic materials that make up a fabric upholstery.

Acrylic, polyester and other synthetic fibres have great tensile strength. They can easily be dyed in lovely colours and achieve high levels of colour fastness. Drawbacks are that they often have a hard, metallic gloss, easily pick up static electricity and that their capacity to absorb moisture is low to very low. For that reason, synthetic fibres are almost always mixed with cotton or wool. Another practice is to mix a number of manmade fibres such as viscose, polyester or acrylic because their individual properties, such as tensile strength, durability, colourfastness, resistance to soiling and moisture absorbency, can vary considerably.

Wool Woollen threads are spun from the coat of a sheep. The most beautiful wool, from healthy sheep and unadulterated by inferior materials, is called ‘virgin’ wool. This type of wool is long-fibre, which makes it very durable. It is resilient and remains very long, which means that flat sections rarely occur in practice. A natural wax layer, lanolin, makes wool dirt-repellent. When maintaining wool, remember

104

Cotton The fibres that are spun from the seed pods of the cotton plant are 15 to 50 mm long. Because they have the tendency to curl, during the spinning process they attach to each other easily and have a high tensile strength. For that reason. the back of pole fibres and the lower fabric of woollen fabrics are often manufactured from cotton. Cotton fabrics have a lower level of colourfastness than woollen fabrics. So they need to be protected more against direct sunlight.

Non-Wovens This is the collective name for upholstery materials which are made of polyester and polyether microfibres. The thin fibres are over 200 times thinner than woollen fibres and aren’t woven, as the name “non-wovens” already indicates, but bound together in an ingenious chemical process. This process produces an ultramodern product of extraordinary softness and high light resistance. Furthermore, these upholstery materials are easy to clean. When you choose fabrics from Leolux, you can be sure that those materials meet very high demands in terms of wear-resistance, colour fastness and fire safety.

You’ll find a complete overview of the fabrics collection at your Leolux dealer or Leolux Design Center.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Leolux: sustainability in design A cleaner world begins by making good, longlasting products with a long life. However, that is not enough. Therefore, Leolux made the conscious decision to produce its products in Europe, in a way that is as non-polluting and efficient as possible: without excessive waste flows and with the optimal employment of materials, people and clean energy. That is better for our environment, for our employees, and for our children and grandchildren. Clean materials Employing the best materials guarantees the long life of your piece of furniture. Leolux also takes account of the origin of the materials it uses. For instance, the beech we use to create extremely robust frames is of controlled origin and fully PEFC certified. When purchasing our leather, we expect our suppliers in Germany and Italy to account for their ecological efforts, for example by a ‘Blaue Engel’ environmen-

106

tal certification. We also expect the same standard of care regarding the materials that are not as visible to the eye: we use water-based adhesives, wherever possible choose powder coating in preference to conventional lacquers and account for the emissions of volatile substances. Moreover, we deliver your final product in vehicles that comply with the latest European environmental requirements.

Waste-free production Leolux has streamlined its production process to such a degree that virtually no waste is produced. We only purchase what we really require to make our products. Any waste that arises during the manufacture of your piece of furniture is sorted and recycled. This applies to foil and foam, but also to leather, textile and wood residues.


A more beautiful world

Our attention for sustainability extends further than our furniture. We see that, for instance, in ‘de Manufactuur’, Leolux’s production areas, which after thorough renovation offer accommodation for young innovative companies. During the renovation, Leolux used as many recycled materials and materials with a Cradle-to-Cradle (C2C) certification as possible. Alternative energy sources, including solar panels and cold and heat storage, make the use of fossil fuels in ‘de Manufactuur’ unnecessary. Moreover, Leolux is driving down its power consumption even more by investing in LED lighting for the entire production environment and all Design Centers in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

At Leolux, we believe that as a family business you can make an important contribution to a more beautiful world. Therefore, we ensure good working conditions for the people who make our products and support regional initiatives and good causes that we - often due to personal involvement - have heartfelt belief in. As a member of ‘Connect Limburg’, we help to put the most European province of the Netherlands on the map internationally and ensure that Limburg remains a healthy, industrious, prosperous and liveable region. The nature that surrounds us gets our special attention. The L-shaped birch grove that Leolux planted on the northern outskirts of Venlo is a symbol of our green principles and is a tribute to nature in and around the city in which Leolux originated. The same principle is the reason we support the nature organisation ‘Limburgs Landschap’ (the Landscape of Limburg).

Green production is nothing new for Leolux. For more than 25 years, we have been closely involved in green initiatives, such as the government ‘Ecodesign’ project (in the early 90’s) and the ‘Ketenbeheerproject’ (chain management project). In 2004, Leolux was one of the first companies to become a member of ‘MVO Nederland’, a forum of companies that encourages and supports corporate social responsibility. By working together, Leolux employs the knowledge that is available with respect to corporate social responsibility. Leolux has been recognised multiple times for its efforts in this area, for instance, it has received the Venlo environmental prize.

A second life for your piece of Leolux furniture We do our utmost to design our furniture for a long life. That is good for you, but also for the environment. Because what you do not throw away does not create an additional environmental load. Even so, at some time you might want a new sofa. If this is the case, consider letting us reupholster the piece of furniture, which you have become so attached to through the years. That is normally possible. We replace all of the components that are subject to wear, including not only the upholstery but also the foam. Your own sofa, but then completely new.

When your table is the centrepiece of your home, an ordinary dining table won’t do. Your home needs a special object, a masterpiece. Aurelio is a solid oak dining table which really deserves a place in the spotlight. The rounded corners from one piece of wood are the masterwork of this table, which requires great craftsmanship and a high-quality production process. The direction of the grain of the wooden corner parts runs parallel to the grain on the legs, which are diagonal to the corners.

Emotion: Leather with ‘body’ Type of use: Intensive use, suitable for intensive family life

• 1.2-1.4 mm thick • Polished semi-aniline with a wax finish.

Ceras is a soft, grained, brilliantly coloured leather, which is still suitable for daily use. To achieve this result, during the finishing process, the hides undergo a special finishing process that gives the leather a strong and slightly matt top layer. The surface is lightly polished, so that the original structure of the hide remains, with recognisable natural characteristics. A perfect choice for lovers of a somewhat thicker leather that has the feel of a waxed leather. Emotion: Purely natural, rich with a luxurious appearance Type of use: Elegant to normal use

• 1.2-1.4 mm thick • Lightly polished leather featuring high-quality pigmentation and a smooth finish.

Leolux places high requirements on its leather and expects its suppliers to account for their ecological efforts. You can read more about our efforts to achieve a totally clean production process on pages 106-107. Maintenance of all the different qualities (except for Danza leather): Leolux Premium Cleaning Liquid in combination with the Leolux Maintenance Kit. Danza leather just needs to be wiped with a dry cloth.

Wrinkling is unavoidable on Leolux products because of the design and the level of comfort chosen. Leolux has good experience with the care products recommended here, but assumes no liability for their application or for the advice of the supplier(s).

About the application of leather 1. 

2. 

3. 

4. 

Leather is primarily cut with the help of computers, but the principle is the same as the cutting by hand performed for decades by experienced Leolux craftsmen. Small scars, scratches, insect bites and a difference in pore density create different nuances in the leather. These natural distinguishing marks also create different nuances in the colour. The refraction of light is influenced by the hide structure, which differs with every piece of leather. Processing a natural product like this demands great craftsmanship and insight in order to arrive at an optimum result. Each hide only has a limited number of pieces which are suitable for larger and more visible parts of the furniture. When cutting the leather, choices have to be constantly made and in order to simplify these choices and make them more manageable, Leolux has implemented three categories of cutting patterns, each distinguishable by colour. The categories are as follows:

A-part, colour red reserved for the most visually prominent parts of the furniture: • front side of backrest • upper side of arms • upper side of seat

B-part, colour orange reserved for the remaining, less visually prominent parts of the furniture: • rear side of backrest • sides of arms • front side seat

146

C-part, colour green reserved for those parts of the furniture which are more or less out of sight: • insertions • lower side of cushions • inner backrest etc. With these categories, the leather cutter can see where each piece of leather will be used in a piece of furniture. The leather cutter follows the following procedure for cutting leather: 1. First he visually checks the hide and marks the obvious flaws, such as unhealed scratches, thin patches and holes. 2. Then he cuts the A-parts. For these pieces he selects the best sections of the hide, avoiding scars and other irregularities. Locating the A-parts takes time and effort, as there’s no such thing as a really even piece of leather! 3. Now the B-parts are selected. The leather cutter chooses sound pieces of leather, but properly healed scars, coarser grain and more open pores are acceptable in a natural product such as leather, and may be processed in B-parts, which tend to seem all the more genuine for these distinguishing marks. The B-parts are generally used in the vertical parts of the furniture, on the outside, so that the selection between the A- and B-parts has an optimal effect and arbitrary processing of the leather parts is avoided.

4. The rest of the hide is used by the craftsman for the small C-parts. For Leolux furniture all sections are cut from leather, with optimum use being made of the possibilities offered by the hide. The most beautiful pieces of leather are used in the most visually prominent parts of the furniture and are not arbitrarily distributed. Leolux is convinced that the most beautiful result is attained with this disciplined production method: a genuine Leolux product!


‘Daily’ maintenance of your Leolux leather Proper maintenance is very important for a natural product like leather. That starts with keeping the leather grain free of dust. Dust the leather upholstery (with the exception of nubuck and waxed leather, like Danza*) with a damp cotton cloth every week to remove dust. This also removes skin oils that can erode the leather over the long term. As tap water contains ingredients that might be harmful to leather, Leolux offers you its safe Leolux Premium Cleansing Fluid for doing this cleaning. Spray the Leolux Premium Cleansing Fluid onto a cotton cloth and then apply it to the furniture.

‘Periodic’ maintenance Use the Leolux maintenance set twice a year on average. The Leolux mild cleanser cleans the leather, all the way to the grain. The Leolux lotion applies essential nutrients deep in the leather and ensures a better moisture balance. The treatment is easy to carry out and you are able to use your furniture after a short drying period.

If the leather becomes discoloured, for instance due to outside influences such as excessive sunlight, Leolux offers a colour restoring set. We have this product produced for you to order by the maintenance specialists at LCK who adapt it to the specific leather and colour of your furniture.

Important tips for leather care • Light changes materials. Sunlight and artificial light cause textiles and leather to fade. Therefore try to ensure that chairs and sofas are not exposed to direct light. This can prevent the material fading or changing colour too quickly. • House pets can also damage your furniture with their claws. Even the most robust leather types cannot withstand a “treatment” by our best friends. • Excessive heat causes fabric and leather fibres to dry out is damaging to all kinds of upholstery materials. Therefore never position your chairs or sofas too close

* Special maintenance sets are available for certain leather types. You will find the correct instructions per leather type in the leather overview in this book and on our website.

to heat sources. If it is necessary to place a sofa next to a radiator, make sure to leave enough space between the floor, radiator and the furniture to allow good air circulation and to ensure optimum moisture in the room and in the furniture. • Ensure that humidity is at the right level. For living rooms, humidity of 45-55% is advised and an ideal temperature of between 18-22°C. These conditions are optimal for a natural product like leather, as well as for people.


Maintenance of fabrics

Quality norms Just as there are norms for leather quality, so there are norms for the quality of upholstery fabrics, which provide insight into the qualities of the material. During its development, an upholstery fabric is constantly tested to check that it meets expectations. Two qualities – durability and light resistance – are of the utmost importance in evaluating a fabric.

Measuring light resistance The light resistance degree of a fabric is tested by means of UV-light from Xenon lamps (synthetic daylight) and is expressed in an International Standards Organisation (NENISO) norm. The fabric is exposed to the light for a certain standard time. Then a colour comparison is carried out with standard colour samples on a scale of 1-8, whereby 8 equals no discoloration and 1 equals high discoloration. The discoloration due to light is unavoidable with fabrics, so that an 8 is unattainable for the furniture upholstery. A light resistance to a degree of 3-4 is generally accepted as sufficient, but can deviate according to colour. Not all shades can therefore be achieved.

Measuring wear resistance Durability is established by means of the Martindale test, which consists of testing how quickly plain woven fabrics wear through and how quickly pile fabrics become threadbare. The name “Martindale” comes from the name of the apparatus which carries out this internationally recognised test.

The results are expressed in the number of revolutions that are needed before a maximum of three threads or less are broken off by a plain weave, or if visible pile damage occurs. Generally a fabric evaluated at 10,000 – 20,000 is suitable for daily use. From 20,000 revolutions, a fabric is suitable for heavy usage.

Choosing a fabric Leolux quality fabrics are always suitable for normal use. All Leolux fabrics meet the stringent light resistance norm of 3-4, and have a durability minimum of 10,000 revolutions. On request, the degree of light resistance and durability of the Leolux Calata patterns can be explained by your dealer at the Leolux Design Centers. But remember that these are not the only factors that define whether a fabric will stay beautiful. Looping, for instance, occurs faster in a coarse-woven fabric, certainly if children or pets play on the sofa.

Caring for Leolux fabrics Leolux selects its fabrics with care and with the right care from you, they will remain lovely for years.

General • Any fabric can discolour under the influence of light. Brightly coloured and dark fabrics suffer the most. For that reason, try to avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight. • Furniture fabrics with natural fibres, and especially woollen fabrics, also appreciate the right humidity (50-60%).

You’ll find a complete overview of the fabrics collection at your Leolux dealer or Leolux Design Center.

150

• Do not let children play on your furniture with their shoes on. Buckles and heels can cause permanent damage to the fabric. • Do not let pets lie on your furniture or scratch the covering.

Maintenance •  Particles of dirt on coverings are practically invisible but they will damage the fabric. So vacuum clean your furniture once a week. Always use the right attachment. Care for your furniture from day one with Leolux Premium Cleaning Liquid. This removes skin fats that collect on headrests and armrests and attack the fabric over time. See the packaging for the correct cleaning intervals.

Stains • Consult the stains guide or www.james.eu • Remove elements sticking to the fabric as far as possible using a spoon. • Then soak a dishcloth in cold water, wring it out, place on the stain and leave to dry. Don’t check whether it’s working. This interrupts the absorption of the liquid into the dishcloth. Do not dab, rub or scrub. • Let stubborn stains dry properly. Consult the stains disc or call the James Stains Line for expert advice: +31 (0)77 - 327 8008.

THE SECRET OF LOVELY LEATHER FURNITURE

Why the right maintenance is so important for your valuable furniture Leather furniture exudes style, passion and comfort. For that reason, leather is also a high quality upholstery material – beautifully soft and supple, natural and sensual. It is and remains a natural element in the human environment. At the same time, leather is durable and, if cared for properly, keeps its quality for a long time. And here it needs our support, because just like the human skin, it can only retain its natural beauty with outside help. Cleaning and maintaining the leather regularly and well helps prevent contamination, drying out or fading. The Leolux Leather maintenance sets from LCK are the most suited to meet all these requirements.

With the Leolux lacquers and stains, you can evoke almost any atmosphere in your living room. We can perfectly match the finish of wood sections or metal legs to the upholstery.

Satiné Those who like a matt finish and sheer lines choose this Leolux lacquer with its completely smooth pearly surface. This lacquer can be delivered in more than 1200 colours. The connoisseur of smooth and shining surfaces prefers this lacquer. However, particularly in the darker shades, scratches due to daily wear-and-tear tend to be visible, as is the case with glass tabletops and the bodywork of a car. The Leolux Satiné lacquer is so smooth that it radiates beauty.

Spruzza A soft grain gives the Spruzza just a little more depth that the smooth satin lacquer lacks. The Spruzza’s colour palette is endless - just like the Satiné, it is available in over 1200 colours. Besides the previously men-

Cristallo A hard, reinforced lacquer with high scratch resistance for metallic effects. Cristallo lacquer is composed of colour pigments and aluminium elements that blend together during the lacquer process. Finally, the Leolux lacquering department ensures a perfect finish for metal parts and for the staining of wooden components.

Epoxy In an environment-friendly manner, the metal parts are given an extremely strong lacquer layer with this “powder lacquer”. The powder is applied to the metal section using static electricity and melted at high temperatures. This gives a smooth and extremely strong layer of lacquer.

more visible the darker the leaf is in colour. Impact and point loading can also cause damage (as is the case with other unlacquered tables). But the coat of lacquer, to which so much attention was paid in its application, is calculated for its task. In normal use, your Leolux lacquered table will be a joy to behold for many years to come.

Lacquer maintenance A Leolux lacquer achieves its full hardness two months after application. The “evaporation process” is then completed and you can no longer “smell” the table. This is comparable to acquiring a new car whose “newness” can be “smelled” for months. During the hardening period, we recommend you treat your product with care. Avoid placing heavy objects on the table and clean it only with a damp cloth and diluted washing-up liquid.

Materials, facts and backgrounds

The Leolux lacquer collection is put together by trend experts to lend your Leolux lacquer products a contemporary appearance. In addition, this collection coordinates perfectly with the colours offered by other furniture manufacturers. Our collection has been selected with the greatest care, but if you would like a different colour, it can be supplied for a surcharge. The Leolux lacquer colours are available in two versions: a smooth Satiné finish and the slightly textured Spruzza variant. These lacquers can be applied on practically all table leaves, feet and armrests.

Lacquer and stains: the finishing touch

Cleaning Stain colours Leolux has a lovely range of stain colours for walnut and oak that permit subtle colour nuances. After staining, the furniture is provided with a strong, transparent lacquer coat that achieves the same properties as the familiar lacquered products from Leolux.

Resistance to scratches Leolux tables are scratch resistant, so they will resist the scratches that arise through normal use. Nevertheless, they are not completely impervious to scratching. Here they are similar to car paints. Hard objects, such as sugar grains, a tray or flower pot dragged over the table top can cause scratches, which will be all the

Clean normally using a damp cloth and grease-removing agents. We particularly recommend the use of a concentrated washing-up liquid. In any case, do not use abrasive cleaners such as Cif. Also, furniture cleaners that contain silicone can create patches which are difficult to polish away. Stains caused by wine, coffee, alcohol etc, should be removed with water and concentrated washing-up liquid. Felt pen ink marks should be removed carefully with white spirit.

When purchasing products to manufacture our furniture, we aim to make the most responsible choice. This also applies to our wood. For instance, all of the beech that we use to construct our frames is PEFC certified and originates from replanting areas.

Solid wood

Wood sorts Oak Leolux reveals the time-honoured European oak of high standing. It’s not possible to imagine life today in the Furniture industry without this wood with its gentle and beautiful grain. The Leolux oak is supplied with a natural or lacquer. Walnut Walnut is highly variegated. Leolux has chosen American walnut wood that has a dark warm glow.

Caring for wood and veneer Solid wood (oiled) Do not place your solid wood table too close to a radiator or open fire. Avoid major fluctuations in temperature and humidity. Make sure the relative humidity in your home is between 50 and 60%. Cracking as a result of a relative humidity outside that margin is excluded from the guarantee. A table with an oiled finish is suitable for everyday use, because the traces of use can be simply removed. Daily maintenance consists of wiping the table with a dry or damp cloth. Every six months, treat your table with the supplied oil. First, carefully remove minor scratches and stains using an abrasive sponge in the direction of the grain. Then use a cloth to apply the oil to the clean and dry table. Polish with a dry cloth. Do not use any corrosive or abrasive cleaners. A maintenance set for solid wood is available via the serviceshop on www.leolux.nl, via the Leolux dealer and from the Leolux Design Center.

Solid wood (lacquered) See the chapter on Leolux lacquered products. Caution Wood discolours under the influence of daylight. Do not place hot objects (saucepans) directly onto the wood. This creates rings that are impossible to remove. Veneer: Finishing and maintenance The Leolux veneers come in various shades, which can all be finished with a variety of lacquers. In all cases, they are given a finishing coat using a matt lacquer. The properties of the lacquer are identical to those of other Leolux lacquers. Maintenance only consists of normal cleaning with a damp cloth and mild detergents. Do not use any scouring products. After delivery, this Leolux product needs two months in which to harden through and through. Do not overload the table during that period.

Materials, facts and backgrounds

A solid wood table is a natural product. A “solid” tabletop or the legs are not necessarily made from one piece of wood, as wood “works”. Humidity causes the wood to shrink or expand. A table made from one piece of wood would warp. To avoid warping, the tabletop is constructed from slats of wood that are glued on all sides. This limits the shrinkage and expansion of the wood. The table legs are also constructed from more than one piece of wood for the same reason.

solid wood are not possible. The leaves of the Tablet coffee table, for example, need to be thin. And if the intermediate leaf of the Calbuco table were to warp it would no longer fit into its housing and would fail on this technical principle. For such challenges, Man has fortunately discovered a technical solution: wood veneer, a thinly peeled or stripped layer of real wood that is applied to a base layer. Real wood, worked into a manageable product.

About glass, ceramics and marble Glass and ceramics The table leaves of the Leolux glass tables are available in clear glass. Bear in mind that glass always has a greenish reflection, possibly with slight variations. The colour of glass influences the way in which you perceive the lacquer colours. HPL (High Pressure

Laminate) is composed of a number of layers and finished with a solid toplayer of melamine resin. This material is non-porous, heat resistant and easy to clean. The Leolux ceramic tabletops are manufactured under high pressure, making them strong, scratch resistant and easy to clean.

Al these materials can easily be cleaned using a glass cleaning product, a concentrated washing-up liquid or water with a dash of denatured alcohol. Do not use any abrasive materials.

Marble Marble is a natural material. Colour and texture vary by product. N.B.: Marble is porous. Immediately remove liquids with water. Cleaning agents with lime-scale remover can seriously damage the marble.

Options for tall and short people Leolux seating furniture is more than just sofas and armchairs. It provides real seat solutions with remarkable properties, which is why Leolux prefers to speak of “seating concepts”. For example, they adapt to the user: after all, standard sized people do not exist. So your favourite seating concept does not need to be disregarded because it is just too high or just too deep. This makes sitting equally comfortable for any user – big, small or somewhere in between.

When developing a new seating concept, Leolux always takes the ergonomics of its furniture into account. Any alteration in seat height, depth or angle can influence that. Therefore, make enquiries before you choose for certain options. For example, if you find a certain piece of furniture too high, then it may only be necessary to opt for a lower version of the same chair and not to shorten the seat depth. Your Leolux adviser is always at your service in this respect!

See the back of this book for the address of a Design Center near you.

Service and Warranty Leolux strives to provide you with a perfect product. Even so, something can always go wrong. After all, the making of a piece of Leolux furniture remains a human activity. If something is not in order, we will correct it for you. And if something goes wrong at a later date, then the Leolux warranty provides reassurance. If you experience a problem, your dealer is the first person to contact, although you can also contact Leolux directly. You can access our service department via the Leolux website.

Fire safety Leolux furniture conforms to the European standards set down by the EUFAC directives for fire-resistance: BS 5852PART 1. Leolux furniture is developed to meet the most stringent legal requirements in the field of fire safety. The foam materials Leolux uses as standard also satisfy the European regulations. Different standards apply in certain countries, whereby additional fire-retardant components in the foam are required by law. Although it results in a different level of comfort, Leolux applies foam provided with the fire-retardant melamine for those countries.

In production, complies with the laws and standards that apply in the country a piece of furniture is intended for. If you choose the fire-resistant foam meeting the so-called “British Standard” rather than the European standard foam, that is almost always possible. Your Leolux advisor will be happy to tell you more about this.

TV MOUNT

SM A RT FL A ME

SOUND SYS TEM

AMENO. FURNITURE WITH A BACKBONE. Connect to smart design. Cables, sockets and ports. They don’t exactly enhance the appearance of your furniture, right? So Ameno places them out of sight. The key element is the “backbone” – a functional channel for the TV mount, cables, multiple sockets, smartphone docks and more, accessible from above.

Smart Flame: fire made from water. The integration of a remarkably realistic virtual fire feature that exudes hygge and style. Smart Flame employs the hidden power of ultrasound to atomise water, producing a fine but dense mist that is illuminated by LEDs. This generates vivid, three-dimensional virtual flames that flicker like the real thing. It is safe and suitable for kids and does not create ash or unpleasant odours. For more Informationen please visit: www.spectral.eu


Photography as a source of inspiration In close collaboration with photographer René van der Hulst and the stylists, Isabel Croon and José Martens, L ­ eolux chose a new direction for its photography in 2013. With a setting reminiscent of the theatre, whereby the main theme, the L ­ eolux furniture, is literally placed on a podium. All props such as lamps and rugs deliver an inspiring contribution to the design. The darker ambience lends extra emphasis to the presentation, which could also have served as décor for a lovely exhibit or film. The photographer and stylists pay the greatest possible attention to the mis-en-scene. The lighting and the camera position are essential for the right result: a photo that inspires and gives the consumer new ideas in a pioneering manner.
