Marco Campardo is a London-based designer and maker, working with private and public clients, designing objects, exhibition design and site-specific installations.
Marco Campardo has a particular interest in making and material experimentation as a form of critical practice, using it to explore wider narratives about culture, materiality, identity and authenticity. Campardo’s work starts with hands-on experimentation and research to question the nature of contemporary models of production. With a keen interest in materiality, his research seeks to subvert or adapt industrial manufacturing processes to propose an alternative to standardised, mass production. He works with local communities and artisans to develop projects that value craftsmanship, tacit knowledge and materials.
