About

A designer of workspaces, Claudia Cañizares is convinced that creativity can be reached in every context by finding the right connections. She uses her experience in visual identity and corporate office interior design and acts as a mediator allowing people to reconnect with (or find) their inner designer and find a sense of purpose in their spaces of work.

In her native Colombia, she studied Industrial design (thus her fascination with human-scaled spaces) and most recently completed a Master’s of Interior Architecture Research + Design at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam, where she now lives.
