Effir Libilbéhéty is a Brussels’ based designer. After obtaining their Bachelor’s in Graphic Design (2014), a training in Gender Studies (2021) and Bachelor’s in Architectural Design (2021), Effir worked as both a spatial designer, creative director and coordinator.

Their practice of ‘design of interactions in real life’ is not to look at but to experience. Objectification and the freak body, incomfort and chaos, community and nomadism, are themes flirted with to force reflection on what we is merely socially de/re/constructed. These experiences bring everyone on the same level : Effir, the works and the public are all subjected to the same submission.

Navigating fields such as spatial design, graphic design, object design, kink scene and DIY-culture, Effir’s abilities extend to woodworking and metal, as well as working with resins, textile, digital tools or humans.
Through a raw, candid and angular aesthetic, each work screams « F*ck Your Discomfort » and intends to confront the viewer with their own

The body is the center piece of their practice, as Effir is in a constant research to experience theirs. From being a dehumanized, unwanted and unincluded body, a sense of catharsis arrises by using it purposefully. Through self-objectification, creating new standards and ritual or developing their own tools.
