Talia Radford was born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain in 1983 and schooled in England after which she swiftly packed her belongings and took a long detour travelling half-way around the world before landing in Vienna, Austria and the University of Applied Arts where she graduated in Industrial Design under the professorship of Hartmut Esslinger, and previously Ross Lovegrove and Borek Sipek.

After an Internship in Hong Kong at Michael Young, Talia founded the design studio taliaYsebastian in 2011 which now exists as taliaYstudio.

Her multicultural background and travels inform her human-based approach to product design, in which the relationship people have with themselves, each other and their surroundings play a central role.
