Bilge Nur Saltik

MA work

I am a product designer originating from Istanbul. In my final projects I focus on playful daily life objects. In the project 'OP-jects' I am designing daily life objects with optical illusions. My aim is to change perception by giving the brain maximum information. I am manipulating the information the brain receives by distorting the image with layering different materials.

My approach to design merges cultures in a contemporary way. ‘Share.Food’ thinks through twenty-first-century dining etiquette. I am focusing on the best way of sharing food with the aim of encouraging people to share food. In my designs I focus on stories behind the objects and human behaviour as a result of it. I am designing whimsical daily life objects that give users functionality and joy.
