Brecht Duijf and Lenneke Langenhuijsen, founders of the design company BELÉN are designing from material. By broadening and expanding the material qualities of spaces, objects and
products, they are creating 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. One of their projects is Cambials a label that makes natural interior textiles out of wood. Brecht and Lenneke are textile designers and graduated both cum laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven at the “Man & Well-being”
