Lorrin Windahl

Senior Social Innovator

 

Bachelor of Industrial Design (Honours); Master of Industrial Design

 

An industrial designer by trade, Lorrin strongly believes that designers have a social responsibility to improve the world that we live in – and that’s exactly what she plans to do during her time at TACSI as a social innovator.
A recent addition to the team, Lorrin joins from UniSA, where she was researching the habitability of future submarines by applying a human centred design methodology and engaging with end users. Before that, she led the design of new products at Cobalt Design in Melbourne, including KeepCup, ASRC Food Justice Truck and ZGo Monitor Arm.

Known for her positive can-do attitude, Lorrin is an empathetic listener and always approaches problems from the perspective of the end user. She has a wicked sense of humour and never takes life too seriously.

Outside work, Lorrin’s current passion is residential architecture, particularly lamenting the current trend to demolish old but characterful houses rather than renovate.
