Marco Campardo is a designer focusing on design and research and across different platforms, materials and disciplines. He has a particular interest in making as a form of critical practice, where objects are understood as tools to explore wider narratives about culture, materiality, identity or authenticity. His projects question the nature of contemporary models of production and consumption through aesthetically challenging and conceptually refined objects. Marco’s approach to design was developed through his work with M-L-XL, a studio he co-founded.
Marco exhibited work at the London Design Festival, Milan Design Week, Tate Modern, London Design Biennale, Venice Art and Architecture Biennale, and Milan Triennial. Speculating about the nature of contemporary design practice, Marco’s projects have been documented across different design publications from Wallpaper and AD to New York Times and Financial Times.
