A challenging small city-studio redesigned into a transforming functional space to meet a fast pace social life style.

Brass rods give Ayla a rustic yet chic aesthetic and edison bulbs provide a soft glow with a vintage warmth. Inspired by fractal geometry and middle eastern patterns, Ayla is composed of mathematical precision that complements the organic feel of the branching halo of bulbs that surround it.
The Wasteful Living Collection is a collection of furniture that consists of both one-of-a-kind pieces and prototypes, produced for different types of mass-production. The collection demonstrates the difference between appropriation as an art form, a design philosophy and as a means of necessity.
Wasteful Living, conceptually, is the art of resourceful living, where post-industrial objects represent the ethos of our current society. A society where the norm. is to buy and throw away, instead of a make-do and mend mentality, a wasteful society. Wasteful Living is where we begin to make-do with what we have and redesign for sustainability with a new approach on materials. Here most post-industrial objects are looked upon as raw material, for new functions. Wasteful Living does not only include objects, that are physical, but also subjects, that conceptually discuss other vital issues in our society.
