It isn’t easy to pin down exactly what Nelly Ben Hayoun does for a job. She has previously been described as a ‘social sculptor’, ‘a fusion between Andy Warhol and Albert Einstein’ and ‘an inexhaustible source of renewable energy that, if harnessed, could eliminate our dependence on fossil fuels’, to name just a few.
Born in the south of France, Hayoun originally studied textile design university before doing the design interactions masters at the RCA. She now heads up Nelly Ben Hayoun Studios, a London-based interdisciplinary ‘Willy Wonka’ agency that creates events and experiences for clients across the spectrum of film, design, music, politics, digital and science.
