Lanzavecchia + Wai is a creative collaboration between Francesca Lanzavecchia and Hunn Wai, established in 2009 during a 3-month residency as part of the Time to Design – New Talent award at the Danish Art Workshops. They began working together at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands, where both graduated with Masters in Design in 2007 and 2008, under the direction of Gijs Bakker. Lanzavecchia received her BA in Product Design from Politecnico di Milano. She likes to explore the relationship objects have with the human body. Wai, who previously studied industrial design at the National University of Singapore, is fascinated by the collisions and fusions of form with material and meaning. In 2013, L+W were shortlisted for ‘Life Enhancer of the Year’ at Wallpaper* Design Awards.
