The born Hamburger Torsten Neeland studied industrial design in his home town, before he opened his own studio in 1991 for Interior and Industrial Design. In 1997 did he move to London with his studio, where he still lives and workes.
Neeland designed flats, fair grounds, and shops. The list of his employers is remarkable: Authentics, Rosenthal and WMF belong to them just like Dornbracht, Audi and the lamp manufacturer Anta which is located near his home town Hamburg.
Neeland was awarded with a lot of prizes for his works, like with the Design Prize of the FRG (Federal Republic of Germany) 2004, and his works are permanently shown in the exhibitions of the Albert Museum in London. His philosophy is that simplicity is a result of a complex process. The relationship between user and object is what the designer is interested in.
