About me

Ambra is an interdisciplinary designer, recently graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Design Products. She is currently starting up GoodWaste, a London-based design studio, as well as working on a freelance basis. Her personal practice can be described as a search for a more circular and sustainable future, seeking a synergy between materiality, desirability and community. Through inquisitive research and playful engagement with materials and processes, she focusses on a more responsible use of resources, while designing objects that question the everyday.
