Due to the pandemie Dutch Design Week 2020 will be exclusively an online event. I attend the online festival with my design of the ‘Urban Nomad’. I revised the design with the knowledge I gained during my Master Design Research I started in 2019. Within the Master I am researching how I can stimulate the relationship between object and consumer. For me, the key of sustainability lies within that relationship. It makes little sense to make products that are made in a sustainable manner but no one wants to keep.

Check out the link to the project and find out about my approach:

‘Glue’ is a new design event in Amsterdam.
My work will be on show at the Architecten Showroom Asmterdam in Ijburg.

Come, and see the result !

Amsterdam based designer Isabel Quiroga created a side table for Uniqka.
Orginal it was designed as a storage for reading
Zin functions as a coffee table and a warm cup of coffee
can be enjoyed while reading. With the help of the leather handle,
ZIN can be carried to any desired place, if it’s inside or outside. Uniqka is an Istanbul-based
design brand, focusing on craft and material. The emphasis is on the
versatility and elegance of leather.

The last year I was working on a design for the Turkish label Uniqka.
A young label run by the wonderful and passionate
Merve Parnas and Kerem Aris. They turn waste of the leather industry
into unique,handmade products. During the Milan Design Week they
present their new collection crafted in their workshop in Istanbul.
If you are around in Milan during the Salone they would be happy
to welcome you in Zona Tortona at Ventura Future!
