Daphne Stylianou

Daphne is a Design Researcher at STBY London. Working at the intersection of design and anthropology she investigates co-design methods for social innovation and sustainability. Her work is often collaborative, facilitating exchange between different disciplines.

Using ethnographic methodologies she has looked into the cultural role of making and materials, with research taking her to makerspaces and fablabs across Europe. Her project on collaborative making and community engagement is part of the AHRC Commons initiative. She has delivered talks and workshops on inclusive design for social challenges around themes of citizenship and democratisation of technology. In her work with international advocacy organisations, she has been involved in sustainable development campaigns.

She has curatorial experience, having participated in the first London Design Biennale in 2016 and has most recently worked with the Design Museum on Designers in Residence.
