  • Rasa Weber (designer, diver & researcher) is an experimental designer between Zurich (CH) and Berlin (DE) who explores the narrative and process-based potential of materials. Her design concepts are characterized by a strong narrative approach and critical ecological thinking. She regularly teaches at international universities and is currently a research associate at ZHdK and a Pre-Doctoral Researcher (ZHdK), associated with the Cluster of Excellence Matters of Activity. She works interdisciplinary in the fields of design, materials research, architecture, and design anthropology. In her practice-based doctoral research »Symbiocean« (supervised by Prof. Dr. Karmen Franinović, ZHdK and Prof. Dr. Karin Harrasser, University of the Arts Linz, AT) she researches on the process of underwater mineral accretion and its sympoïetic potential for the ecological formation of marine habitats. At the intersection of marine biology, anthropology, and design, she explores the notion of Interspecies Architecture within her research on sympoïetic design processes with human, animal, and microbial actors in the ocean. She is one of the founders of They Feed Off Buildings, a design and architecture collective, in collaboration with Luisa Rubisch. As founder of the studio Blond & Bieber, she collaborated with textile designer Essi Glomb on bio-based material and color concepts.
