- Designer and concept developer
Margherita is a designer and concept developer and works at Waag and its TextileLab Amsterdam on several European and national projects in which she translates concepts into tangible works through material research.
She is trained as both an industrial designer and an artist and has 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.
Margherita also works on a broad range of other independent projects through her own studio where she fulfills the role of designer, curator and teacher.
