Alain Monnens is the founder of his award-winning studio for product design, branding and photography.
Based in Belgium, Alain founded the studio in 2006 after working for an industrial design studio in The Netherlands and a number of design companies in Belgium.
His studio is specialising in lighting, furniture, and objects that are minimalist in style with maximum functionality.
For Alain, it is not the adding of elements but their integration with the whole form and function which is important. He sees design as the art of reducing and designing for different sectors as a form of cross-pollination.
Over the studio’s history, he has won several design awards, including a Henry Van de Velde Label, iF Design Award and a number of Red Dot Design Awards.
