Mathieu Lehanneur

The French designer Mathieu Lehanneur is on the forefront of the international design scene. His designs are inspired by nature while exploring new technologies. The artist thrives on creating spectacular projects that are intended to enchant and to encourage wellbeing.

The Challenge

How to Recreate the World's Ocean Colors

For a collection of 50 faïence works, Mathieu Lehanneur sought detailed and accurate representations of the world's oceans and seas to serve as inspiration. He required the necessary information to select 50 distinct shades of blue for his collection and sought to depict the natural colors of these bodies of water to accurately capture their beauty and diversity.
