Daniela Toledo is a narrative driven designer based between Santiago and Shenzhen working across the fields of Textiles, Product and Communication design.
Having grown up in her paternal family's furniture factory Daniela is fascinated by small-scale serialisation and the entire process that makes raw matter become a product; heavily influenced by her tailor grandmother Daniela became obsessed with textiles at an early age and has increasingly been integrating this materiality to her design projects, always guided by a restless conceptual approach that characterises her practice.
Daniela is always open to collaborating and work for and with commercial and private clients in Chile and abroad.
