Torsten Neeland was born in Hamburg, Germany. Following his studies in Industrial Design at the College of Fine Art in Hamburg, Torsten Neeland set up his office for Industrial and Interior Design in London in 1997, where he now lives and works, establishing Studio Torsten Neeland. He has been developing his design experience with particular focus on contemporary design from corporate interior branding to product design for manufacturers such as Audi, Dornbracht, Driade, Donna Karan Home, Yohji Yamamoto and Magazin. His work has been widely published in the national and international press and is featured in several product and interior design books. The timeless design approach is clear and direct as is his signature emblematic design language. He believes that simplicity is very often a result of a complex process and the work being carried out in the office is very much related to interdisciplinary thinking.
