Marta Figueiredo

Marta Figueiredo is an Australian-Portuguese multidisciplinary designer based in NAARM/Melbourne. In 2016, she founded her design practice which unites innovative technology and craft to produce playfulness, joy, and sensory experimentation. With her works, Marta wants to challenge beliefs about standardisation, sustainability, and prompt discussions about new ways design can speak to a broader sensory experience. Her recent projects focus on the possibilities and uses of waste products, as well as the ecological narratives that may be developed to address our times. Marta has received various awards (High Commendation Clarence Prize 2021) and nominations (Finalist AFDA 2020). She has exhibited in Australia and internationally, including Shanghai, Paris, Brussels and Milan.
