Natalia Baudoin is a Bolivian and Venezuelan designer based in Paris. After obtaining her product design degree at the National Fine Arts School of Lyon (France) she moved to Argentina where she worked in development projects with indigenous and marginalised communities developing productive activities enhancing crafts and native cultural knowledge, among other design projects. 


She took several postgraduate and master's courses at the universities of Córdoba and Buenos Aires, Argentina, as well as at the Humboldt Universität zum Berlin and Sorbonne University in Paris. She is now a PhD student at EnsadLab, within PSL University. 


Her thesis project focuses on how design can enhance traditional indigenous craftsmanship in South America through its hybridisation with other techniques and knowledge while respecting the craftsmen's cosmovision. In partnership with a solidarity bank, the project is also considering the development of new financial services adapted to the needs of productive communities.


Her work is a dialog between her several cultural influences creating expressive objects with symbolic value and has been exhibited in Argentina, France and Spain.
