Benedetta Pompili (IT, 1995) is a social designer based in Amsterdam. A dedication to materials with a focus on their narratives and environmental impact identifies her practice. She rethinks manufacturing techniques and their aesthetics toward circular making. Her research aims to share knowledge, motivate care, and retrace tradition by thinking and acting in an interdisciplinary way.

In parallel with her own studio practice, she is technical advisor and glaze professor at Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. 

She was designer in residence at Sunday Morning EKWC (European Keramik Work Center) in 2021. In 2022 she covered the role of Tech Fellow in ceramics atRijksakademie van beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam.
She is among the recipients of the upcoming Creative Residency Arita (2024) and of the Stimuleringsfonds Building Talent Grant (2022). Her works have been displayed at Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Design Museum Gent (BE), and at the Keramiekmuseum Princessehof (NL), among others. 

In 2018, she graduated with honors with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design and Ceramics from ISIA Faenza (IT). Urging to approach making through an environmental and conceptual lens, in 2019 she attended the Social Design Master's at Design Academy Eindhoven (NL), where in 2021 she graduated with a nomination for the Gijs Bakker Award.
