Turan -Architect&Lighting Designer

During my time in Milan, visiting many important exhibitions, fairs and museums and seeing the works of famous designers on site has been a source of motivation and inspiration for me. I started to wonder how my designs in my imagination would turn into a product physically, how they would communicate with the user in the real world, and whether they could be exhibited in international fairs. This sense of curiosity made me look at my career from a different perspective. Thus, I started to realize my designs both on the sketch and in the digital environment.

Seeing that art and design feed on each other in Milan gave me a different inspiration. In addition to functionality, I started to use more aesthetic elements in my designs. In this respect, Milan taught me to nourish myself with art during my design processes. I started to simplify by reducing unnecessary details and to show the beauties under my design ideas in a simple way.

As a result, as soon as I returned from Italy, I founded our own design studio in 2019. I am currently realizing my own designs and I am very happy for that.
