I am a product designer and design educator with a B.ID. from METU and MA from RCA; working on furniture, public furniture, accessories, toys, games and rituals & spells. I teach at the İstanbul Bilgi University and Bahçeşehir University; give design workshops and write on relations between craft, design and education.

In my personal work I investigate how people engage (and have done so) with human-made, both on a physical and cultural level. I explore the implicit language of things, the meanings and histories surrounding the objects and the associations attached to the things that occupy the everyday environment. I collect, combine and transpose these references to design objects and narratives that are based on visual and physical memory, where the subjective borders about position and capacity of things are not strict but multiple.
