Following her graduation in 2001 from the Interior Architecture department of the Ecole Nationale des Arts Visuels de la Cambre in Brussels, Nathalie Dewez quickly found her way in Lighting Design.
Nathalie brings delicate attention to the duality of ‘ matter / non-matter ‘, which she sees as being at the core of all lighting devices; with an emphasis on function as well as on the quality of light in both on and off situations. Nathalie’s works are characterized by an economic use of means, minimum use of components and a focus on ease of production. Her light works carry an undeniable charisma. Just a few lines or surfaces bearing simple and effective geometry are enough to express delicate poetry.
