Mathieu Lehanneur

Born in 1974, Mathieu Lehanneur is a French designer on the forefront of the international design scene. Mathieu Lehanneur has a multi-disciplinary approach to creativity: his projects stretch the realms of product design and object to architecture, craft, and technology. 

His designs are inspired by nature yet push the limits of design by exploring new technologies. He crosses boarders by combining design, science, technology, and art in projects that aim to achieve maximum welfare for human beings. Air, water, light, and sound are amongst his favorite materials to create his science-inspired humanistic projects.

He considers human beings as complex structures whom need more than chairs but need air to breathe, sustainable food, good health, and love to live better lives. Born in 1974, he graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle in Paris.

His works can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris, and at the Design Museum Gent. He has also designed interiors for Saint-Hilaire Church in Melle, France; for Château Borély in Marseille, France; for the Hôpital des Diaconesses in Paris, France; and for the Café ArtScience in Boston.
