Liliana Ovale, UK

Liliana Ovalle is a product and furniture designer based in London. After graduating from the Royal College of Art  in 2006, she established her own practice where she has developed a wide range of commissions and production pieces.  Her designs pay special attention to inquiring themes as the 'incomplete' and 'unrehearsed' observed in the urban context.

Ovalle's works have been selected for multiple exhibitions including Design Miami, Museo Poldi Pezzoli and  Gallery Libby Sellers.  In 2014 the  Museum of Arts and Design in New York  presented her Sinkhole Vessles as  part of the show New Territories, Laboratories for Design, Art and Craft in Latin America.
