About the Artist
Mathieu Lehanneur’s work explores pos¬sibilities in nature and technology, attempting to redefine our relationship with food, medicine, transport and other crucial aspects of life that many young designers tend to shy away from. He frequently works alongside scientists, trying to find out more about the human body and societal needs so that he can create futuristic but functional solutions. Lehanneur made his international début with a series entitled ‘Elements’ (VIA Carte blanche 2006) and in 2008 his work featured in Design and the Elastic Mind, a major exhibition at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. He is continuing to work on projects that aim to improve our quality of life by combining science and creative thinking. Of his work he says ‘My job is to design the ritual and relationship between the user and the function.’
