ABOUT

Laura Mrkša (Croatia, 1992) is a slow designer in a fast-paced world, working from Amsterdam. Having a background in industrial design and living the reality of a curious observer, her designs play with subtle critique and irony. She works in the fields of product, spatial and critical design, exploring social fixations that determine today’s (European) societies, such as consumerism, individualism, and materialism. The interplay of use-value in large scale projects and critical value in conceptual research constitutes a foundational theme in her practice, tying together the various fields of design she is active in.
