Shahar Livne

Material Designer

Shahar Livne is a conceptual material designer. Her lifelong fascination in nature, biology, science, and philosophy led her to do intuitive material experimentation during her degree studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven. Livne's body of work focuses on conceptual material research in a multi-leveled methodology, bringing to life unique stories through objects and installations–each centered around the material as a carrier of narratives. Livne's projects deal with obscure materials such as blood, man-made fossils, crystallization and more. Her projects starting points are often stories about places, cultures, and relations with resources in the past, present, and future.

Shahar Livne is the winner of the ECO Coin Award 2020.
