“Until the 90’s my country Turkey was a Non Liberal Nationalist country. Access to knowledge therefore intellect, and communication with the outside world was limited. You needed knowledge to access knowledge. Given this situation, my knowledge of design theory was limited to what I could get my hands on in few libraries and what was taught in my university. During and after, I was deeply influenced by the words of Enzo Mari, Ezio Manzini, Andrea Branzi who gave lectures at Domus Academy. I felt like a five year old in a candy store, a dry sponge sucking up all the information around me. A caveman that has just been unfrozen was brought into the 21st century. It was the best educational experience of my life. I have a multi disciplinary office that works mainly with local Turkish brands who are trying to expand globally.”
