Designer Johan Van Hengel is a problem solver by both nature and training. His logical and investigative approach is driven by a desire to enrich everyday objects with new layers of sophistication, individuality and meaning. With a focus on function, materiality and technique, Van Hengel invests everyday shapes and objects with a subtle element of surprise. As a solo designer, he has worked with Hay on the 30 Degrees Pendant and Muuto's Folded Shelves.
Van Hengel has also collaborated with designer Ralf Lambie on the Tor Table for Montis, which earned them the Elle Wonen Talent Award.
