Hi, I'm Irene. I study at the Rhode Island School of Design and am completing a degree in Furniture Design with a concentration in Environmental Studies and Human Empathetic Design. Additionally, I study Traditional Papermaking on the side. I enjoy investigating different methods of papermaking that can be applied in sustainable and practical ways within my furniture practice (for example, making durable paper thread for upholstery).
I am dedicated to work that considers social and physical equality in work environments, public spaces, classrooms and more. I love working collaboratively with people across disciplines to find solutions to complex problems.
