Ragna Ragnarsdottir (born 1988 in Iceland) graduated with honors from Ensci Les Atelier in 2016. Working around the intersection of design, art, craftsmanship and production she explores a creative process that enables the design of objects more intuitively. Instead of designing objects from existing industrial or craft techniques, she searches for new processes where the design is a direct result of the production. Always working with accessible materials she takes care of mixing opposite mediums, using materials in untypical ways or making them take an opposite look where the result is a particular product or installation. With her experimental approaches, she hopes to create a positive interaction between the user and the product.
