LMO is the design studio of artist Elise McMahon, who sees each object as holding a story of social and material culture from extraction to disposal. McMahon’s depth of knowledge around craft and history came from training in the Bauhaus method of design @ Rhode Island School of Design for her BFA & Industrial Design w a focus on Sustainability @ Parsons School of Design for her MFA. Through LikeMindedObjects and other art and education projects, she experiments fluidly towards the seamless combination of art and industry. Her work in Art, Design, Research and Education has resulted in international projects and diverse press coverage.
