I am Giulia Tomasello designer and researcher based in London and currently Ma Material Futures in Central Saint Martins. Born in Italy I graduated at NABA, in product design I lived for one year in Netherlands studying social design at Design Academy of Eindhoven. As a designer I am looking to raise awareness, to expose assumptions, to provoke actions and to spark critical debates. My aim is to design alternative scenarios, acting as a creative thinker. I consider materiality as a tool to question and communicate the boundaries between technology and us. Since RUAH, my BA graduation project I started a continuous research on wearable future and smart materials using an open source philosophy and a trans-disciplinary design approach.
In 2014 ALGI was born with the intention to use technology for human needs, using design to improve people daily lives. ALGI is a collaboration between an architect and a designer FHEEL is our first wearable project.
