Lennart Vandewaetere

Lennart Vandewaetere is pleased to welcome you
to experience the tactile and luminous qualities of a new series of standing and table lamps. His creative process consists of folding and assembling by hand, sensing different translucent materials. You are invited to experience the drawings and other graphic material that accompanies Lennart’s creative process.
For the first time, he will also publicly present a selection of aluminium lamps he developed in the past.

As an architect, Lennart approaches furniture from a technical and manufacturable perspective. Elements that already exist and are familiar to everyone are his inspiration, and the uniqueness of each design comes from the way he brings these elements together. Searching for the right junction is crucial in proportion and composition, resulting in simple, functional, and economical designs.

Lennart Vandewaetere (1990, Ghent) graduated cum laude as an architect from KU Leuven Faculty of Architecture (Sint-Lucas Campus Ghent) in 2014.
He has gained practical experience as an architect at Dierendonckblancke architecten and noAarchitecten. In recent years he has been an independent architect for ‘wissel architectuur studio’, a collective he founded in 2017 with Felix Schiettecatte and Marius Vaneeckhoutte.

Since 2019 he has been teaching as an assistant in architectural design at the KU Leuven Faculty of Architecture Campus Ghent and Brussels.
