Gitta Gschwendtner (Photo credit: Gitta Gschwendtner)Gitta is a designer who takes everyday objects and adds a touch of the unusual to provoke particular associations and memories in people. She came to London from Germany in 1992 to study at Central Saint Martins and then at Kingston University, followed by an MA in furniture design at the Royal College of Art.

Gitta is well known for her witty approach to products such as her 'Strangled Light', and also for designing exhibition spaces. She has worked on shows for the Victoria and Albert Museum, Crafts Council, The Wellcome Trust, Somerset House, the Science Museum, the Design Museum and the British Council.

"The best thing about studying at Kingston was the different lecturers. They gave me a diverse view of the professional world outside college and ultimately inspired me to pursue a career as a freelance designer."
