Marta Ríos is a conceptual and product designer based between the Netherlands and Spain. Her work sits at the crossroads of design, performative research and Internet memes. As spatial forms become transformed through diligent and critical practice, the viewer is left with a tribute to the edges of our culture.

Marta developed her fascinations during the Social Design master program at the Design Academy in Eindhoven and the year she spent at the School of Form (Poznan, Poland). She is an enthusiastic designer who strives towards bringing societal change through her practice.
