Speaker for the Leading your practice - voice, change and expression in design event
Ella Doran is a highly-acclaimed designer, textile mark-maker, photographer and teacher, who is currently a Visiting Lecturer on the Interior Design MA Course at the Royal College of Art in London.
Ella’s award- winning portfolio includes her own-label homewares and interior furnishings range. As a fellow of the RSA, Ella champions the principles of the circular economy through public engagements and teaching projects. Her current focus is the exploration of new approaches in circular design that offer practical artistic solutions to address the challenges of product creation in a saturated society. She has given lectures and workshops at the Barbican, V&A and Clerkenwell Design Week, amongst others, engaging the public in the re-use of materials and furniture.
Ella’s recent solo show and documentary on material circularity and transparency, ‘Sheep to Seat, Fleece to Floor’, was held at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in summer 2019. With sensitivity to the complex relations between cause and effect in product design, Ella seeks projects that draw on innovative technologies to help push the industry towards a carbon neutral economy.
