Forough Najarbehbahani is an experiential and product designer with a technical background in public art/installation, exhibition pieces and sculptural lighting design who graduated from UNSW with an Honours degree in design (object/product design). Her focus is on product/object design, with an extensive interest in designing installations for public places. Forough’s interests in designing complicated, smart, and interactive structures, installations, and surfaces have recently led her to collaborate with the mechanic and mechatronic engineers. Forough has featured in several group exhibitions locally and was shortlisted for WORKSHOPPED19, Designing Bright Futures 2019 at the Australian Design Centre, Kudos Gallery 2019, TWT Excellence Prize, and shortlisted designer for VIVID 2020, VIVID 2021 and Enlighten Canberra 21. Her Honours project ‘Demarcation’ as a site-specific interactive design installation is inspired by her personal story and vision for a world without borders. It combines high-tech manufacturing processes and surface design in order to create a data-driven, dynamic installation. Forough always had an eye for the way things do and do not fit together. From the age of eleven, she started to design rugs and published her first albums of Persian rug designs at the age of nineteen. She moved to Australia several years ago to study design and fulfil a desire to apply herself to creative industries. She has previously collaborated with the UNSW CREATE team for VIVID 2019, Sydney Dance Company, UNSW, the MakerGames program, interning at Amigo and Amigo studio, and designing site-specific sculptures in collaboration with EPICentre at UNSW Art and Design for SIGGRAPH ASIA 2019.
