Coline Le Quenven is a multidisciplinary designer and artist based in London. She explores the future aesthetics of materials to encourage more sustainable practices using critical design, research, and craft to explore new narratives about the human impact on Earth.
Keen on using waste as raw material, she sees design as a tool to raise awareness more emotionally and humanly than facts and figures do.
Her practice revolves at the moment around producing unique pieces as well as functional objects in small series and collaborating with other designers.
