“I started in 1993 with designing chairs for the contract market. My specialty is to approach the design from the manufacturing point of view. This was achieved without losing sight on the good design of the product. The challenge in designing the Angel chair for Kubikoff was to create a low cost chair with a high-end design value. By introducing the new Angel chair, I think we have succeed in making good design more accessible for a wider range of people.”
He studied Industrial Product Design at Mimar Sinan University and established DOR, a modern furniture design company, in 1988. He has been a Designer and the Design Director at B&T Design since 2000.
