Plastic Decoration by LEONHARD KURZ

Synthetic surfaces from KURZ – aesthetic and technological masterpieces

LEONHARD KURZ is your global design and service partner for the extraordinary surface finishing of your products, from concept to series production. We have received numerous awards for our impressive solutions: Automotive Brand Contest 2020 for our Iconic Space Grille, which combines futuristic design with pioneering technology. Creativity and innovative spirit are firmly anchored in the KURZ DNA. Konrad Kurz, the son of our founder, Leonhard Kurz, laid the foundation for a completely new industrial sector: In the early 1930s, he applied for a patent for the very first hot-stamping foil coated with genuine gold in what is referred to as the sputtering process. With this he made gold leaf, up until that time only produced by hand, available for many new applications. Today we have an unrestricted choice: Numerous surface finishes for simple or complex geometries, pioneering opportunities in design and technology, for individual parts or large-scale productions. For KURZ, every new development is an interaction between technology, design, and the future, with a special focus on the responsible use of our resources. The result: Innovative surfaces that open up new possibilities and already meet tomorrow's requirements for function and design, today. See for yourself!

Visionary Design

It all starts with WHY

To really create something NEW, you need a clearly defined WHY - a distinct attitude as a compass for new ideas, highly innovative approaches, and ultimately visionary designs. That's why we've initiated visionary design, an in-house source of inspiration for thought-leaders, thinkers, and visionaries - with the goal of creating, and offering creative new impulses in the world of surface design.
