Longlisted for Dezeen Awards 2022 emerging design studio of the year, Fragmentario is a Brooklyn-based design studio.

The studio's work has been exhibited at Mana Contemporary, SXSW, A/D/O and the 2021 London Design Biennale, where the La Rentrada exhibition won the Theme Medal.

Fragmentario's research-focused practice draws from history, science and food-studies and seeks to provoke conversations around geopolitics, migration and globalisation.

The studio's inter-disciplinary body of work re-contextualises and transforms ubiquitous materials through experimental processes.

Projects include avocado-seeds gathered by restaurant-workers and water provided by individuals around the world.

This studio has been longlisted in the emerging design studio of the year category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
