Louisa Carmona is a product and textile designer based in Switzerland and Belgium. After graduating in Industrial Design from ECAL — University of Art and Design in Lausanne in 2015 and gaining experience alongside the Zürich-based designer Jörg Boner, Louisa embarked on a journey of study and research in the field of textile. She explored ancient traditional spinning and weaving techniques with crafts·wo·men in Argentina and Benin. Such experiences and the following education through the Master in Textile Design at La Cambre in Brussels, completed in 2023, have led her to integrate the textile element and its sensible approach into her design practice. Textile has become a field of material and technical exploration. Investigating its different properties and possibilities of finishing and processing, this research into shaping takes the form of artefacts to be activated, manipulated, and transformed, affecting our relationship with the object.
