Graduated Cum Laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2016, Wendy Andreu is a craft designer who aims to communicate through the materials she is using. By experimenting with them, she finds surprising outcomes that can be translated into functional design proposals. She is able to execute any idea that comes to her mind in order to check the potential of it. She likes to think of the bridges between matter, people and space in an open way. In her research, the context has as much importance as the concept, without forgetting the quality of the making and the aesthetic of the pieces. She works from her atelier in the 19th arrondissement of Paris where she develops personal experimental projects as well as commissioned works for public and private clients.
