Biography

Turkish designer Tamer Nakisci is fascinated with the future. His work looks forward to a time when “form follows you,” as he creates a more emotional relationship between people and objects. His breakthrough came with the award-winning 2005 concept for the Nokia 888, a flexible, shape-shifting phone. After studying in Milan, Nakisci returned to native Istanbul to start his own studio, focusing on concept, interior design, and interactive installations. His highly customizable work includes the Pixel rug, with interchangeable colored dots, and the award-winning Dot bathroom tiles, which can be mixed and matched to create patterns. Other works reference Turkish culture, like the Shade rug, inspired by Middle Eastern craft, and the limited-edition Light, which reinterprets the mashrabiya latticed window as a kilim made of wool, silk, and mirrors.
