Lanzavecchia + Wai is an Industrial Design and Design Strategy consultancy based between Italy and Singapore. To them, being designers means being researchers, engineers, craftsmen and story-tellers at once. Wai hails from the south-east Asian island state of Singapore, educated as an industrial designer at the National University while Lanzavecchia received her BA in Product Design from the Politecnico di Milano in Italy. They began their cooperation at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands, where they both graduated with Masters in Design under the direction of Gijs Bakker the co-founder of Droog Design. Lanzavecchia’s main interest lies in the relationships objects have and can have with the human body and soul as well as having a fervent eye for future trends. Wai is fascinated by the collisions and fusions of materials, meanings and forms.
