- Designer and concept developer
Margherita works as a designer and concept developer at Waag and is involved in the TextileLab Amsterdam.
With a background in Industrial Design and a degree from Gerrit Rietveld Academy, since 2014 she worked for and collaborated with different institutions as a curator, designer and art teacher, until 2016, when she opened her own studio.
Margherita’s work is based on a strong interest in tactility/tactile perception at the intersection of art and healthcare, supported by material research with a focus on the creation of patterns and textures. She is intrigued by how objects and materials stand in relation to our bodies and senses, and how these relations create a secondary effect on human behavior.
