Established in 2020 by Ľudmila and Erik Blaho, Project LEA is a multidisciplinary design studio focused primarily on architecture, interior design and product design.
At LEA, we strive for simplicity, functionality, truth to materials, respect for nature and context. Our goal is to find a balance between raw and elegant, between natural and enhanced by technology, between traditional and the future. We push the boundaries of what’s possible in the field of architecture and design. We are dedicated to delivering unique, tailored solutions for our clients through constant experimentation and testing of new ideas and technologies. We are always adapting and evolving, always pushing the envelope, always striving for excellence, to stay ahead of the curve. A diverse range of design disciplines allow us to bring a unique perspective and cross-disciplinary approach to our work which can lead to more innovative projects. Our guiding principle is to create designs that are not only visually appealing, but also functional, sustainable, user-centric, with a focus on enduring relevance for both the present and the future.
