Mathieu Lehanneur

Mathieu Lehanneur, one of the top designers and influencers, is a French designer who is at the forefront of the international design scene. He is also one of the few in his generation to use his talents in a variety of areas, beyond furniture.

Innovatively, he combines design, science, technology and art to create humanistic projects to achieve maximum welfare for human beings. Graduating from ENSCI-Les Ateliers / l’École nationale supérieure de création industrielle, Paris, his works are in the permanent collections of the MoMa (both New York and San Francisco/US), Centre Pompidou (Paris/FR) and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Paris/FR).

In 2008, American magazine Popular Science’s “Best Invention Award” was awarded to Andrea, Lehanneur’s indoor air purifier, created in partnership with Harvard University and based on studies developed by NASA.

Mathieu Lehanneur collaborates with world leading brands such as Nike, Veuve Clicquot, Audemars Piguet, Hôtels Pullman, and Schneider Electric. With the same proficiency, Lehanneur creates spectacular projects for Saint Hilaire Church, UNESCO’s world heritage (Melle/FR) and works in partnership either with start-ups from different fields or important players such as Huawei, with whom he collaborates as chief designer. Lehanneur also works in limited editions or unique pieces, for the Carpenters Workshop Gallery (Paris, London and New York). 

Mathieu Lehanneur was invited to lecture at TED Conference Global programme in 2009 and, in 2012, to have his book published by the German publishing house Gestalten and to have an exhibition dedicated to his work at the Le Grand Hornu Design Center, Belgium.
