Graphic design creation and edition studio set up in Paris in 2008, AK-LH is one of the most dynamic french brand skilled in interior decoration. Between graphic design, painting and urban art, its fresh and off-beat style shakes our senses and gives a new and colourful look to contemporary decorative arts.
Using a 100% cotton canvas and digital printing process, AK-LH applies its creations on objects of our daily lives (cushions, tea towels, bags, mobile phone hard cases) and on exceptional seats: ‘Tante Wera’ wingchairs, limited editions of 7.
Following ethical and quality convictions, the whole AK-LH range of artefacts is totally handmade in small series by the best French craftsmen. These products are distributed by 120 outlets in Europe, Asia, Almerica and Africa.
Edition company but also creation studio, AK-LH works on different graphic design projects with company and private people. AK-LH collaborates with many partners like Branex Design, l’Atelier contemporain, Beach Access, 18Faubourg, Notsobig, Fire Design, Merci Gustave !, Ofess and FieldCandy.
The models of these collections are harmoniously combined to transform your interior in a modern art and design gallery.
