Claire Markwick-Smith is an interior, spatial, and object designer based in South Australia. With a background in hospitality-based interior design, Claire has worked on projects both nationally and internationally. Claire’s practice extended into object design after a year-long residency in metal fabrication and furniture design with George Street Studios. Heavily influenced by her interior design background, Claire’s object design practice focuses on composition, construction processes and materiality. Her solo project ‘Chair Show,’ an exhibition of objects Claire had designed and fabricated over a period of 12 months, led to an expansion into exhibition and installation design - an ongoing focus within her practice.

Being heavily involved in the fabrication processes of her practice, Claire applies these learnt principles and knowledge to all aspects of her design process, exploring the aesthetic influence this has on her work.
