Lina Patsiou is a designer working with narrative in object and space. Her work spans from production design and art direction for film and photography, design of experiencial spaces for retail and hospitality and the creation of conceptual objects of investigative nature.
Lina finds inspiration in the space between nostalgia for a realm of fantasy and the anticipation of futuristic magic. Her interest in identity, meaningfulness and the nature and origins of beauty also inform the themes of her more experimental works.
She is a Royal College of Art graduate, a best young designer of the year nominee for the Elle Decoration International Design Awards (EDIDA) and a patent holder. She was included in Marie Claire's 30 under 30 list of European women in the creative industry.
