The Art Toys LEO’Z: a success story
Since 2014 no fewer than 26,000 collectors have fallen for the LEO’Z art toys created by the Paris based Peugeot Design Lab and ARTOYZ. The Series 3 follows the Series 1 & 2, as well as the limited editions that Roland Garros and the Peugeot 2008 DKR LEO’Z.
The story of the Art Toys began in 2012 with 10 unique handmade lions created for display at PEUGEOT Avenue Paris. These original Lions were inspired by the LEO mascot created by PEUGEOT’s designer Christophe Pialat. Decorated by designers from Peugeot Design Lab, these unique items were a nod to the combination of copper and carbon that adorns the PEUGEOT Onyx concept car.
