I'm interested in working with unexpected materials - and particularly recycled/found materials. In 2006, I designed the Conversation Table which was featured in several magazines, blogs, and exhibitions. The iconic “speech bubble” shape combined with the material choice makes this a unique table a great conversation piece.
"Conversation Table" by Leo Kempf, 2006. Corrugated cardboard, hardboard, and laminated hardboard spacers.
In 2018, I was excited to launch the cardboard bathroom decor items. Like augmented reality for people on the toilet - with a legitimate function. This design project brings some humor and fun to bathroom decor. Your extra rolls of toilet paper are transformed into iconic symbols of our time - the "typing text" speech bubble and the location pin/check-in icon.
Texting Toilet Paper Holder and Location Pin Toilet Paper Holder are available for purchase at www.leokempf.com in LKD signature corrugate style, harking back to the LKD Conversation Table. A cool, natural, soft look with the same function as the standard wood product. Shop Now
