Geometrically inspired designs have been a current theme in the spatial scene for quite a while, but Merve Kahraman decided to step it up a notch.
For her newest series of tables and stools, the designer drew inspiration from optical illusions. With Dip Stool, she created a stereoscopic effect by layering and combining different kinds of wood. Kahraman carefully assembled the geometric pieces together by hand – a level of craft she applies to all her work – to create a puzzling three-dimensional illusion.
Kahraman started her career in Milan by studying interior design at the 'Istituto Europeo di Design' and finished her masters at Central Saint Martins in London. Driven by her desire to make furniture and products integral to her spaces, she focused on industrial design.
The young creative caught our attention over a year ago with her dynamic designs, and she’s now opened her first flagship store in her hometown of Istanbul.
