Benedetta Pompili (b. 1995, Pesaro, Italy) is an interdisciplinary designer based in Amsterdam. A dedication to earthwork ethics and local narratives distinct her practice. She focuses on learning making processes, rethinking them for sustainability aims and magnifying overlooked viewpoints. Her work aims to inspire and motivate by challenging common perceptions, encouraging to change habits by introducing intersectional and transdisciplinary perspectives. She is among the recipients of the Stimuleringsfonds Building Talent Grant of 2022, as well as Ceramics Tech Fellow at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam.

Bio
In 2018, she graduated cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design and Ceramics from ISIA Faenza, where she started discovering the fundaments of the design discipline. Urging to approach crafts through a maker lens, in 2019 she applied for the Social Design Master course at Design Academy Eindhoven in The Netherlands, where she graduated in 2021 with a nomination for the Gijs Bakker Award.

She is an alumna of sunday morning EKWC (European Keramik Work Center), where she realised the project Conversing with Matter. Her works have been displayed at MU Hybrid Art House and Cor Unum Ceramics, among others.
