Swedish minimalism and British individuality come together at Oppermann, an exciting, new men’s leather goods brand that has recently emerged from East London.
Launched in 2012, it is the creation of two young Swedish brothers Mattis (24) and Niklas (26) Oppermann, whose aesthetic is centred upon clean shapes, minimalism and highly considered design. After all, when your mother is an art teacher and your father an engineer, products that encompass aesthetics, practicality and preciseness are inevitable.
Both brothers came to London to study. Niklas moved first in 2009 to attend Cass Business School, graduating in 2012 with a BSc in Business Studies. Mattis followed in 2011 and is still studying for a Joint Honours degree in Design and Innovation at the University of London and will graduate in June 2014.
