Nathalie Dewez will be part of our upcoming issue.

Following her graduation in 2001 from the Interior Architecture department of the Ecole nationale des Arts Visuels de la Cambre in Brussels, Nathalie Dewez quickly found her way in Lighting Design. Nathalie brings delicate attention to the duality of ‘ matter / non-matter ‘, which she sees as being at the core of all lighting devices; with an emphasis on function as well as on the quality of light in both on and off situations. Nathalie’s works are characterized by an economic use of means, a minimum use of components and a focus on ease of production. Her light works carry an undeniable charisma. Just a few lines or surfaces bearing simple and effective geometry are enough to express delicate poetry. Nathalie’s presence at numerous international shows and exhibitions has led to collaborations with a number of architecture practices as well as producers such as Ligne Roset (FR) and Established & Sons (UK).

Giving a second life to unused Hermès materials by transforming them into something completely new, that forms the basis of the project of the french Hermès brand named “Petit h”.  The resulting “Petit h” workshop is a laboratory of innovation, a playground where designers and artisans collaborate and develop new ideas. From leather, porcelein, cristal or fabric, all designers and craftsmen work closely together to find the best ways to promote recycling in the house. After visiting the different factories through France Nathalie is joining the team of designers of “Petit h” with different products using crystal, ceramics and fabrics.
