I have designed many lampshades in different materials, such as metal and wood, but I had never before designed in leather. Uniqka founders Kerem Aris and Merve Parnas took me to their workshop in Istanbul and asked me to design a collection of objects, including lampshades. The Zero Collection is the result of this collaboration.
It feels like we are carrying forward our heritage by giving shape to new objects. Our motto is ‘love for leather’!
