Laura Deschl is a Social Designer and Artistic Researcher with a background in Fashion & Textiles. She holds a Master of Fine Arts and Design from Design Academy Eindhoven.

Through her interdisciplinary approach, she creates a discourse between fields that usually have little overlap. Her research-driven work often finds object- or material-based translations accompanied by academic writing.

Her current research focuses on the field of therapeutic textiles. She is passionate about dissecting complex social issues, for example, the entanglements around the field of psychiatry and healing by questioning systems and narrations in regards to mental health.

Most of her work explores the relationship between subject and object – stemming from her curiosity in affect psychology and in the question, how objects can initiate, regulate and influence human emotions.

She is based between the Netherlands and Berlin.
