Scientifically Well Designed

A designer, Mathieu Lehanneur showcases his designs which are based on the scientific basis. This means the stories and inspiration of his designs are based on scientific knowledge and understanding.

Mathieu Lehanneur therefore returns to simply good and useful design by referring to natural history more than to design history; for him the user is above all a body, a place of chemical exchange whose physiology is to be attended to in order respond to its needs, desires, or emotions. It is an exploration of natural and technical possibilities which permit him to produce objects which are equally functional and magical, as well as both strange and friendly. An intuitive or very real recognition, he sometimes even collaborates with scientists and doctors to invent new ergonomics when confronted with our tangible challenges: to breathe better; to sleep better; to love better; to live better.
