About: LEFF amsterdam

LEFF amsterdam designs beautiful clocks.

The fact that the Dutch word ‘lef’ is derived from the Hebrew word for heart and their studio is located in the heart of Amsterdam, is not the only reason why brothers Arno and Dennis Ruijzenaars and designer Erwin Termaat have named their brand LEFF amsterdam.

More important is the Dutch meaning of this word: doing something others don’t dare to do, pushing boundaries, going against the grain. Because who in the world would start making clocks these days, while time is all around us?

Arno: "Well, we would. Because we think clocks are amazing products; they are technical instruments and can be art pieces at the same time. But most of all, because nobody really needs a clock. This challenges us even more to create something beautiful that everyone wants to have."

LEFF amsterdam’s products are available in the finest stores and museum shops worldwide, such as the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Selfridges and Paul Smith in London, Le Bon Marché in Paris, Design Republic in Shanghai and La Rinascente in Milan.
