Catrinel's work lies at the intersection between product design, installation, and sculpture.
Her multidisciplinary practice is driven by her experimental approach to material exploration and finds its conceptual roots in science and philosophy. Motivated by her interests in perception, time perception, entropy, light, and nature are recurring themes embedded in Catrinel’s pieces.
In her process, she uses a mix of advanced industrial manufacturing techniques such as laser cutting and manual ones such as casting. The objects are often built upon a scaffolding of technical components whilst mimicking an organic/natural inspired phenomena.
After graduating, in 2018 she opened Catrinel S.tudio in Cluj-Napoca. In recent years she has been exhibiting her work around the world at Dutch Design Week, Milan Design Week, IMM, etc.
