BELÉN is established by Lenneke Langenhuijsen and Brecht Duijf, who met each other at the Design Academy Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
BELÉN designs from material. By broadening and expanding the material qualities of spaces, objects and products, BELÉN creates tangible design for the future. Central to their approach are the intuitive, emotional and physical aspects of design, resulting in products and visions that show unexpected applications of material and colours, as well as revaluations of conventional techniques. BELÉN works on material and colour concepts in the field of product design, interior design and exhibition design.
They have been commissioned by Georg Jensen, Villa Noailles Hyères, Textiellab Tilburg, amongst others.
Their work has been exhibited at Textile Museum Tilburg, Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam, Palazzo Clerici Milano.
