Miray Ozlem Er and Ataberk Saracoglu decided to design a collection that includes a coffee table, a console, a bookcase, and a seating, merging the playful esthetics of ‘Memphis’ with the functionality of projects by the Japanese designer Jin Kuramoto.

The project’s purpose was to reinvent the usual perception of the chosen materials.

Most people often see industrial materials as worthless, while Memphis’ colourful, playful and unconventional geometric elements might be perceived far from functionality. The starting point of the students’ idea was to create a functional and catching collection inspired by both ‘Memphis’ and Jin Kuramoto’s designs.
