ORGANIC &

SHAHRAZAD

Collaborated with Giant Turkish ceramic company Kale, Shahrazad and Organic Ceramic tiles and accessories aims to create relaxing atmospehers at bathrooms.

Life Box is designed to meet the inherent life needs of disaster survivors in a rapid and effective way. It is especially built around the idea of air-dropping disaster relief goods into hard to reach zones. It includes a box that turns into a four-person inflatable tent containing relief goods and a parachute that is used as the outer layer of the tent. The graphic instructions offer easy usage, with a set-up time of less than one minute.

ORGANIC

INSPIRATION

“Organic” provides a relaxing bathroom experience with vertical gardens. While changing the ambience of bathroom and providing fresh air, it also empowers users in terms of personalization. Users can grow  different species of plants.

 

While I was seeking for an inspiration I was dreaming about how bathrooms could be integrated with nature. I inspired from organic forms and freshness of water droplets on a leaf after rain.

IDEATION

Vertical garden for a relaxing view! My idea was born with “nature in bathroom” concept. In this way, using plant was ideal.

I thought that while taking a shower or bathing, looking at plants can be really relaxing. For a larger view and savings from the space a vertical garden idea sparked.

SCENARIO

‘Organic’ takes its name from organic shaped accessories. Besides its innovative features in function, these liberal forms gives feel of freedom.

SHAHRAZAD

Inspired from fables and memories, Shahrazad presents a new world to user with hanged accessories on tiles. It turns even the smallest areas into most

relaxing bathrooms.

 

INSPIRATION

IDEATION

I imagined tiles like paper; free and light, floating but safe!

The idea was born with a question that I asked myself; How can I design a bathroom that users feel as if they are in a new world?
