Uwe Sommerlade

Uwe Sommerlade, the son of a civil engineer, was born in 1961. As a child he spent a good amount of time at his father’s office and designed his first houses and objects there.

In his grandfather’s joinery shop, he learned how to work with wood at an early age. After receiving his baccalaureate and completing an apprenticeship as a joiner, he went on to study design in Kassel. In 1992, together with two partners, he founded the office Lepper Schmidt Sommerlade there. Since then he has been developing internationally successful products for renowned clients. He established his own studio in 2011 after the death of Christian Lepper.
