Today, Chilean designers more than ever are celebrating their national heritage. As they incorporate new designs inspired in local culture and handsome indigenous materials, a standout among them Ignacia Murtagh. With her studio based in the trendy Barrio Italia, she makes elegant ceramics that turn stone shapes into poetry. Her china also interprets traditional Mapuche shapes and graces the table of many of Santiago’s top hotels and restaurants. Her “Los Andes” tables caught the international eye and were shown at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York, then sold through American furniture manufacturer Bernhardt Design.
