Raya Stefanova is Bulgarian designer whose work circulatеs between disciplines aiming to create and make responsibly. In her practice she has been involved in projects exploring contemporary design from various perspectives — from objects and spaces to materials and methodologies; from design as form organisation to educational and social initiatives.

Shortly after graduating from Design Academy Eindhoven, she served as artistic director of the international festival of contemporary design One Design Week 2016 — Can I help you?.  Her biggest challenge in this position was to identify and understand the themes that are truly relevant to society today by making interdisciplinary links and reacting to the rapid evolution of design in general. More about Raya︎
