Lucy D. is a design studio in Vienna, Austria founded by Barbara Ambrosz (1972-) and Karin Santorso founded in 2003. Both studied Industrial Design at the University of Applied Art in Vienna where Ambrosz also has been lecturing since 2008.
Ambrosz and Santorso work in an interdisciplinary fashion and are familiar with various technologies from manufactural up to robotic processes. Lucy.D concepts are planned with a high degree of sensitivity for the brand and material in question. Some of their designs created for Alessi, J. & L. Lobmeyr, Wiesner-Hager and the hotel chain Wombats have been included in international exhibitions and have received international awards. “Tèo”, the teaspoon for Alessi was awarded the Menzione d'onore Compasso d'Oro in 2014. “Liquid Skin”, the drinking bowl for J. & L. Lobmeyr is now a fixed part of the collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and their cake design line for Vienna's Landtmann’s Fine Patisserie was honored with the Wallpaper Design Award 2015. Currently they are working on several new design projects and furniture and are part of the research team in an EU promoted research project for “Robotic WoodCraft in Design” in Vienna
