Ana Rita António

Ana Rita António’s (b. 1980, Leiria, Portugal) presentation of 14 Ways of Replacing a Table Leg is part of the final project for her studies in design and an additional chapter in her project The Poetics of Miss Understanding. It is a systematic demonstration of the designer’s task of finding creative problem-solving strategies for a real everyday situation. The deficiency, here the lack of a table leg, sets an imaginative improvisation process in motion and leads to practical results, which display a still-greater ingenuity.
