MAKER STORY: Les Few
Sophisticated and Warm, Minimal and Refined, Pure and Functional. Based in New York City, the Swedish born Eva Eklof started her line of beautiful objects called Les Few as an ode to Swedish Design, with an edge of New York sensibility. Her latest collection called Armance is made of brass, wood, and leather pieces which are finely crafted in Sweden. I love the way these textures come together, utilizing Swedish brass, which is hand shaped by expert metal smiths, then creating perfectly fit leather pieces to add a soft, lived in feel. The idea for the leather accents came from the old Leica camera cases, which Eva always had growing up. The leather craftsmen sew all the pieces in central Stockholm on the same edge-stitch machines that used to sew the leather camera cases for Hasselblad and Leica. Where better to handcraft these pieces for the line then in the leather workshop that still uses many of the same techniques and machinery as the original production, ensuring these boxes are as finely tuned to fit their brass tops, as the classic camera cases were to their lenses.
Eva strives to create pieces for life, pieces that you love and cherish. Minimalism and refinement in form and material remain at the heart of Les Few’s creative work with a design process that centers around close collaboration with skilled Swedish craftsmen.
Eva Eklöf was born in Stockholm, Sweden and grew up in a 60’s house by the Baltic sea. Her family has a strong creative tradition, especially linked to Modernism, most notably through Sven Eklöf, a pioneering Swedish architect who helped shape the Mid Century Swedish aesthetic. From an early age she was therefore exposed to concepts of minimalism and refinement in form and material, which remain at the heart of her creative work.
Les Few focuses on exquisite materials, impeccable craftsmanship and precise details, combining a timeless perspective with easy elegance.
