Mengsel @ Pulse 2010
MENGSEL was established in London in October 2009 by Luzelle van der Westhuizen. Luzelle studied Jewellery Design and Manufacture at Cape Town’s University of Technology, graduating with honours. After working for other designers in the industry Luzelle felt like it was time to go on her own creative adventure, and so MENGSEL Design was born.
MENGSEL is the Afrikaans and Dutch word for mixture or blend and the word truly encapsulate what the brand is all about. Featuring bold, repetitive shapes in vivid colours, with a beautiful minimal aesthetic, the designs are just waiting to burst into your home and brighten your day.
Working from her studio in Richmond, South West London, Luzelle prints simple, playful, bold and colourful designs by hand using traditional screen printing methods. Influences include African and Scandinavian design, geometric and hand-drawn patterns. The goal is to reach a wider audience at Pulse 2010 and to transform MENGSEL into a recognised design brand with a wide range of distinctive products.
