Twitter Snapshot: Mathieu Lehanneur blends fantasy and functionality

Posted by: Jenny Zurawell

Designer Mathieu Lehanneur presented several of his imaginative creations, inspired by the interplay of nature and technology. Among his designs: a petaliferous antibiotic, an interactive lung for asthmatic children, a sound-neutralizing fiber-optic ball, and Andrea- an air filtration unit that harnesses the natural processes of living plant systems (to name a few). The audience was quite impressed on Twitter:

Lehanneur follows the theme of invisible design, as if an object’s function exists implicitly and invisibly around itbrainpicker
