Lea Lange

Founder & Managing Director

Lea has a B.A.Sc. in Finance and Accounting and an M.Sc. in International Management. She gained her first work experience in business consultancies (Ernst & Young, Hovarth & Partners, Roland Berger).
With an eye for design and an avid decorator of her own apartment, friends and family often turn to her for help when accessorising and styling their homes. Several years of lending her interior aesthetic to her inner circle lead her to the realisation that there was no solution for individuals on a budget to buy and own art, without having to cave into mainstream options. And that is how she identified a market sector that was not yet being catered to.
Equipped with invaluable experience and yearning for a new challenge, her entrepreneurial drive kicked into full gear. Teaming up with ex-coworkers, long-time friends and fellow design enthusiasts Marc Pohl and Sebastian Hasebrink, she took the plunge. Thus, in September 2013 JUNIQE was born: the online destination for curated, affordable art from around the world.
