Textiles, Pattern, Materials & Industrial Design


Lauren Moriarty is a product designer with a focus on materials experimentation and combining craft and industrial making processes to create new concepts for products and interiors. Her product portfolio has received much attention to date, being featured in many national and international design and lifestyle magazines and winning a number of prestigious awards.

Lauren's portfolio is a series of explorations into concepts for interiors, objects, lighting, packaging and children's products, each exploring how decoration can be functional and interactive and how materials can tell a story.
