Derek McLeod creates furniture and objects for people who like to live with quality. The pieces can be described as archetypal, comfortable and usable – things that make life better by looking and performing well. A reduction occurs in the design process that strips away unnecessary elements to arrive at a clear and obvious result.
McLeod graduated from OCAD U in 2004 with a Bachelor of Design where he has since taught and has exhibited internationally, in Milan, New York and London, UK. He currently runs Derek McLeod Design Inc., based in Toronto.
