Maria Jeglinska (*1983) established her Office for Design & Research in 2010 in London. She works on a wide range of commissions: industrial design projects, exhibition design, as well as research-based projects in the field of design. She designs products for Ligne Roset, Cinna, DesignMarketo, Porcelana Kristoff and recently made a film for the St Etienne Design Biennale. Since 2010, she is an associate researcher at W.I.R.E, an independent think tank based in Zürich. In October 2012 she curated and designed: “Ways Of Seeing/Sitting” at the Łódź Design Festival in Poland.
She graduated from ECAL’s industrial design course in 2007 and was awarded a scholarship from the IKEA foundation that led her to work for Galerie kreo, Konstantin Grcic and Alexander Taylor.
Convinced that in today’s world, research can trigger and generate new forms of answers and offers, she co-founded in 2010 the EESTT (Eastern European Study Think Tank), a think tank focused on Eastern European countries working in the field of design and architecture.
