EN: Ignacia Murtagh is a Chilean product designer, currently living in New York. Her background includes a mayor in Design in Santiago Chile, brief studies in Furniture Design in Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, a Post Experience Program in Ceramic Design in the Royal College of Art in London and an apprenticeship in the Royal Crown Derby Bone China Manufacturers in Derby, UK. Her work ranges from ceramic, furniture and textile design, creating objects with a strong connection with contemporary living and an aesthetical experience.

Chile´s nature and landscape is her main source of inspiration. She carefully studies her source and how it can be translated into contemporary objects that communicate the poetic beauty of nature. Her design method is wide: Some projects will be found in local and traditional methods and its reinterpretation into contemporary pieces. Other will respond to its materiality and manufacturing process. It all depends on the story behind the product and how materiality, function and form are coherent with the narrative that structures and characterize the pureness of her work.
