The interdependence of design, art and technology is becoming ever more crucial when it comes to creating the kind of future we want to live in. Working at the cutting edge between all three disciplines is the formidable French designer, Mathieu Lehanneur, who — despite claiming he has always tried to be a specialist in nothing — has mastered his craft within each. Intrigued to go behind the scenes with the multi-talent, we visited him in his calm, light-filled Parisian studio. There, we got Lehanneur’s take on materiality, the philosophy underpinning his own studio space, and how he chooses with whom to work next.
