Nazara Lazaro

Nazara Lázaro is a product and interior designer based in Berlin, and her Crooked Collection was borne of the one thing that might strike fear into the majority of designers’ hearts — no 90-degree angles, and no symmetry. The use of 3D modelling software was her starting point, as she realised she could create limitless variations and then whittle the selection down to the most striking incarnations of her idea. Her ability to experiment without fear and draw from non-traditional design cues may be the result of a life spent traveling and soaking up disparate cultures, from the Canary Islands where she was born, to Japan — where she spent a two-year sabbatical learning about woodwork and architecture — to an exploration of the Silk Road.
