Augusta Lutynski is completing her bachelor's degree in Industrial Design at Emily Carr University. She currently works in design research and has a background in textiles and traditional shoemaking. In her design practice, she uses making as a means for inquiry, seeking to better understand the objects and systems people engage with. Her work responds to these unique relationships people have to space, whether that is around the dinner table, a neighbourhood, or to the body. Focusing on the contextual narratives within a space has been an important part of her process and final design outcomes. Augusta hopes to prompt dialogues and new perspectives in her work by engaging herself and others in design that is situated, responsive, and experiential.
