“Born and raised in a developing country, I am an industrial designer who nurtures a strong interest in social and environmental issues,” Sirikhanate Sakulyong says. With a background in biology and animation, she has an appreciation for complex systems and understanding of the human-nature dynamics, as well as the ability to craft stories to represent her designs.
Often taking inspiration from nature and the ecosystem, she strives to create meaningful designs that are alluring and humane, and that leave an impact. “Collaboration and community,” she says, “play a big role in my creative growth as I continue to nurture my curiosity and creativity through design.”
