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.
Merve Kahraman Design Studio offers full interior design services including concept design, project design development, architectural drawings and 3D visualization, brand identity and graphic design, on site inspections and interior architecture applications.
In all our products we are trying to create pieces of fine craftsmanship by using honest, natural, finest materials combined with artistry and engineering skills. All our manufacturing is made in Turkey by local craftsman who have been practicing their fields for years.
