Shortlisted for Dezeen Awards 2022 emerging design studio of the year, Fragmentario is a Brooklyn-based design studio.
Fragmentario in a design studio founded in Brooklyn in 2016 by María-Elena Pombo.
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.
