About Charlotte Lancelot

 

She studied at the Industrial department of the Ecole Nationale des Arts Visuels de la Cambre in Brussels, where she was graduated with honours in 2003. Before setting up her own studio, she worked with  the architect and designer Alain Berteau for two years. She collaborated with internationally recognized brands such as GAN, Koziol, Konstantin Slawinski, Kidslab, Easyoga, sdesign, rvb, le MUDAM.


In 2012, she started a collaboration with Gan and presented her “Canevas” collection (rugs, poufs, cushions) made of oversized felt cross-stiches. She launched her second complete collection “Silaï” with Gan in 2015. Her work was highlighted by 101% designbrussels, Elisabeth Leriche, le magazine Wallpaper, The New York Times, le monde, Archiproducts... Since 2008, she has been teaching as designer at the National School of Arts ESA St Luc Brussels.


Her work is characterized by an emotional bond with everyday objects, which surpass their own functions to bring wellbeing and joy into our lifes. She creates and mixes textures, patterns, colours and natural materials.
She gets her inspiration from past references that she integrates in contemporary aesthetics. Her creations tell stories, they take you out and remind you of memories, they give you a taste of freedom.
