2105- Motus Bench



A bench designed with the idea of constant movement, even when anchored to a fixed place, MOTUS combines handcrafted lime wood with contrasting marble legs. The seat is hand-painted, with an image reminiscent of The Great Wave off Kanagawa.

Taken together, the painted image and the surfboard shape represent the egoist human nature and the search for freedom.

Merve Kahraman


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.
