Karina Clarke, Facilitator

Karina Clarke is the CEO Design Tasmania, her areas of expertise include design academic, furniture, homewares, design management and interior design. Karina’s experience as a Senior Lecturer at UNSW Faculty of Art & Design give her a deep understanding of the cultural and social influences which shape our response to furniture and objects. She has worked within the manufacturing sector and also continues her practice as a designer and consultant to other businesses. The breadth of her design experience underpins her commitment to the collaboration or dialogue between designer, manufacturer and user which she sees as central to the development of furniture, lighting and objects for either small scale production or individual handmade designs.
