Mehrnaz (Naz) Mohseni


Hi. My name is Mehrnaz Mohseni, but you can call me Naz.

Born in England, summers in Iran, and in the United States by 11, I was raised in a house of science. My father was an aeronautical engineer, my sisters geneticists. It was expected that my early days looking through a microscope would result in a life of science. However, my head was always in the clouds and I spent my days contemplating the “what ifs” of life and nature.

As a designer my approach is a combination of influences from my past. I embrace science and experimentation with a nod to my cultural past. Throwing myself into the process and never afraid to mix fields, I'm not intimidated when things go awry. Whether I’m making a new organic material, innovating sustainable manufacturing systems, or creating new expressions of culture, I want to integrate the technology of nature with the soul of life
