Barbara Ambrosz and Karin Santorso founded design studio Lucy.D in Vienna, Austria in 2003. The two designers want their work to reflect their clear and open minded approach in their projects. True to their vision, they create various products in the fields of product, architecture as well as corporate design. Lucy.D´s vital engagement is to reveal the poetry in everyday life building a basis for developing their inspiring and at the same time practical products. Their design concepts merge form, function and technical aspects of a product in an intelligent way, constantly striving to create harmony and balance between tradition and innovation, sense and sensuality, detail and ensemble.
Ambrosz and Santorso work in an interdisciplinary fashion and are familiar with various technologies from manufactural up to robotic processes. Lucy.D concepts are planned with a high degree of sensitivity for the brand and material in question; Ambrosz and Santorso additionally offer their professional assistance throughout the whole process starting from implementation until the production of the final product.
Studio Lucy.D´s main locations are Vienna and Upper Austria where they run their workshop. Currently they are working on several new design projects and furniture and are part of the research team in an EU promoted research project for “Robotic WoodCraft in Design” in Vienna at the University of Applied Arts.
Barbara Ambrosz and Karin Santorso both studied Industrial Design at the University of Applied Art in Vienna where Ambrosz also holds lectures since 2008. Their clients include Alessi, J. & L. Lobmeyr, Wiesner-Hager and the hotel chain Wombats. International awards, sponsorships and exhibitions characterize the Lucy.D success story. Tèo, the teaspoon for Alessi is awarded the Menzione d'onore Compasso d'Oro in 2014. Liquid Skin, the drinking bowl for Lobmeyr is now a fixed part of the collection at the Museum of Modern Art in NY and their new cake design line for Vienna's Landtmann’s Fine Patisserie was honoured with the Wallpaper Design Award 2015.
