x + l stands for Xander Vervoort and Leon van Boxtel, designers based in Amsterdam, Holland. with a background in theater and art, they founded x+l studio in 1996, focussing on interior design.

through the years they worked in several disciplines: photography, advertising, stage design, fashion and exhibition design.

in addition to this commissioned work they create handmade objects that are unique or produced in very small numbers. 

in 2013 x+l launched 'parfumobscure', a perfume made with pure and natural ingredients, collected on their travels to India, Japan, France and Italy.

since 2018 a selection of their designs is represented  by Objet d'art_galerie in Tokyo, Japan.

also in 2018 x+l started a collaboration with artisan collective Phantomhands in Bangalore, India. they designed a new collection for them, as an addition to their handcrafted re-editions of Pierre Jeanneret furniture for Chandigarh. this collection is slowly growing.

the studio consists of just the two founders. working closely together with artisan friends, enables them to maintain the very personal view that is x+l.

in this online store they present handmade products that they have created themselves, most are one of a kind, single objects they like the irregularity in the products: the human touch is an essential part of the design. they embrace the imperfect and hope you will appreciate this as well.
