Daniela Dossi is an Italian designer currently based in Eindhoven(NL) and Paris(FR).
She was trained as a designer at Politecnico di Milano(IT), University of Brighton(UK) and Design Academy Eindhoven(NL).
In 2009 she moved to Amsterdam (NL) to work with the eating designer Marije Vogelzang and one year later she started collaborating with Droog Design, joining the Droog Lab whose core task was to respond to contemporary global issues by investigating them on a local level to pioneer new directions for design.
In 2012 she graduated cum laude from the Social Design Master at Design Academy Eindhoven (NL) with the project ‘Micro Utopias’, a user-driven model for connecting and co-creating unexpected services to fill a local void.
Currently working as an independent designer on self-initiated and commissioned research-driven design projects, she focuses on exploring relations, contextual resources and infrastructures to create open models, collective strategies, design narratives and actions in response to relevant social issues and cultural practices.
She has been collaborating with a diverse typology of networks, cultural institutions, organisations and collectives in Europe such as aaa-Atelier d’architecture autogérée (FR), Timelab (BE), Manoeuvre (BE), Z33 (BE), Studio Makkink&Bey (NL), MAK Vienna (AT), MAO-Museum of Architecture and Design (SI), Van Abbemuseum (NL), Design Academy Eindhoven (NL) and Het Nieuwe Instituut (NL), among others.
