Leah approaches design with an element of curiosity and joy. She finds that pushing an idea as far as it will go and asking all of the “what ifs” is not only a fun exercise, but it often results in innovative design. Actually, Leah finds joy in many aspects of her life — from making something with her hands to push through a creative block, collaborating with her colleagues, or relishing a good vegan breakfast sandwich. When she travels, Leah has three criteria for her destinations: the location needs to be old, cold, and quiet. If she cannot comfortably wear a sweater outside, it isn’t worth it.

Loves: Chairs. Old chairs, tiny chairs, homemade chairs, uncomfortable chairs.
