Lieke Lenaerts (°1993) is a Belgian designer. In 2018 she graduated as Master of Arts in Product Design. During her studies Lieke discovered the power of design to communicate to the public. Her work is characterized by this layer of communication. This informs a wide variety of topics from the complexity of the human mind to the relationship between crafts and local heritage.
Lieke’s work has been exhibited internationally, with an ongoing focus on the communicative aspects of design. Thorough research is the heart of her work. In combination with her own personal view, Lieke dissects a theme and translates it into a visual design language. Objects are used as active agents to inform users about a certain topic. This research-based working method results in functional and experimental designs, balancing between the object and the experience.
