We stopped by the Graf & Lantz headquarters recently...
Why did you start Graf & Lantz?
We are both extremely independent, curious, and adventurous people who like to create things. A couple of years ago we started making products out of felt. At the time out of our living room. We started selling and it just evolved naturally, like all the best things in life. Now with our own factory in Silverlake we can concentrate on the design process which is our favorite part.
What is your design philosophy?
Less is more, materials are funner when they’re mixed, timelessness is better than trend, form loves function. Yes, we know its cliche but we live by it.
