I Recognize the Pattern

Over the course of many years, I have observed the pattern of denial that emerges when people bring out issues of wrongdoing. Speaking from personal experience, I can respect their views because I recognize the resistance they face. Here

the use of traditional weave structures that become distorted beyond recognition by laminating them to a layer of wool stands as a metaphor for how the facts become distorted and changed in the ensuing debates.

A second chance’- project together with Serda Çamlı- for VitrA(TR)

The Chandelier- ‘a second chance’ is an upcycle project for VitrA brand, Turkey, which produces sanitary products and recently has represented Turkey at the ‘European Business Awards for the Environment’ and won the 1st prize. The Chandelier was designed to announce the good news.

After a factory visit to see all the pieces and the waste components, together with sculptor Serda Çamlı, we picked the basin mixer handles to give them a second chance.

The oak elements are added to complete the handles and hold the candles. The oak box in the bottom supports the handles and serves as a storage for extra tealight. And the handles function as fancy tealight holders with a handle to move around independently, and they also serve as the sliding covers of the box.

İpad case/ felt set- a promotion line for architects, for VitrA(TR)

Felt set- a promotion line for architects, for VitrA(TR), 2014
The line includes:
– roll pencil case with sketch pencils
– iPad case coming with a notebook that has an iPad contour and a pencil to be replaced by a stylus if wanted
– sketch roll with a cutter and case

The pencil case: I was asked to design a roll pencil case with 5 sketch pencils for architects. The client specially didn’t want any extra space for anything else. While playing, this came out: the set looks complete with 5 pencils while hiding space in between, upside down, for extra pencils. For me, this is not a design easy to think about while sketching, sometimes it is the best to get the material in your hands and discover the potentials

The iPad case: being part of the felt line for architects, carry the same pencil detail as the pencil case, and it’s a bit hidden on the top side. The case comes with a notebook and a pencil; The notebook is designed having the iPad contour and the pencil can be replaced by a stylus if wanted. The case was sent to the selected architecture offices by post on special days

The sketch roll: being part of the felt line for architects, has a metal piece attached to it with an elastic band going through the center of the roll. Observing how the architects use a sketch roll and how they use a ruler or an edge of a table for a straight cut, this idea came up, a metal piece is adapted to the roll for tearing neatly. The metal piece also holds the end of the roll in place and prevents the roll from opening and getting damaged.

When the roll is finished, the metal piece can be taken out and used with a new roll. The sketch roll has a felt case that protects the roll and existing sketches.

Face Shield

Due the recent COVID-19 pandemic outbreak that causes shortages in medical supplies for both medical personnel around the country and the public that do not have access to these supplies. Our good friend and printing supplier, Songpol Press had ask us to help donating the design of the face shield to be produced and distribute to the people and hospitals in rural areas throughout Thailand.

The face shield was designed for efficient logistics. It was made mostly out of paper, so it is light and can be used 1–2 times. Usually, face shields are plain and similar to each other, so we design both the structure and the graphics on the mask that are colorful to lift up the moods and cheer up hopes in the front field.

We use paper as the structure to reduce plastic waste. Along with the PET plastic for the window area that can be easily removed and very safe to use. The face shield design itself is user-oriented. We design a box to be placed on the forehead position by adopting the box folding method into the design. This makes it easy and quick for users to fold the forehead guard box and also improve the sturdiness of the face shield. The forehead guard box also giving the distance between the face and the shield just right for those who are wearing glasses and aren’t.

Moreover, this face shield design comes with graphics art that will inspire others to contribute by designing inspirational artworks to cheer up medical workers or supporting financially. Therefore, we believe that this design serves as one of the drives that push forward cooperations among people and community.
