Description/

Inspired by the ancient “Chair of Nails Torture”, which was studded with spikes and used by inquisitors, “Malicious” was designed to create a feeling of disturbance, hesitation and fear in users. The purpose was to see the reactions and behavior of the users towards disturbing objects.

There are 41 cnc cut aluminium round-edged studs and 41 strings to allow the movement of the studs into the seat. Each stud works individually allowing the user to sit comfortably, a very pleasantly surprising sensation. To complete the rough and rock & roll look of the “Malicious”, black matte finish is used on wood, the metal studs are painted gold and black leather is used for the upholstery


Merve Kahraman

designer

Merve Kahraman studied Interior Design at the Istituto Europeo di Design (Milan/Italy) before moving to London to study MA Product Design in Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (London/UK). During this time she has worked in several architecture and design studios in London, New York and Istanbul including Tom Dixon and Tord Boontje. Her decision to specialize in industrial design stems from her desire to include furniture and products as an integral part of her designs for spaces. In her works, she explores the relationship between her products and their users. Developing a personal bond either through the means of reoccurring cycles or lending the object as an extension to ones personality. Sustainable design, that redefines character, executed through masterful craftsmanship is what the designer is constantly striving for. Recently, she is working on her own industrial design and interior design projects between New York and Istanbul.
