Caterina Tioli is an Italian design researcher based in The Hague.
She graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven in the department Public Private.
Currently, she is doing a master in Interior Architecture at The Royal Academy Of The Hague, KABK.
Her anthropological approach puts humans at the centre of her design practice.
She is fascinated by the culture, traditions and identities that bind a place together. The way that each element is connected to a story that can be investigated and discovered.
Research is essential to her process, in particular, studying and learning from people and experts.
Seeing as the objects of the past have such different personal stories, there is so much that can be learnt from people related to the topic.
Sometimes the discovery of the research leads to a materialisation, but often the research itself can be the final product.
Caterina is usually driven through her projects by emotional, emphatic and personal interests. However, her way of working and process always follows a clear and rational methodology.
