Liliana Ovalle

Liliana is a researcher with the Interaction Research Studio and teaches on the MA Interaction Design. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2006, Liliana has run her own practice working on product and furniture design. In her work, she pays special attention to inquiring themes such as the “incomplete” and the “unrehearsed” observed in the urban context.

Her designs have been selected for international exhibitions including Gallery Libby Sellers and Museo Poldi Pezzoli. Her project Sinkhole Vessels is part or the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.
