Bouste Bouste is a lighting unit family in an harmony with architectural and natural environment of METU campus.

Current lighting units in the campus were not really in an harmony with its surroundings. They were also having some eďŹƒciency and maintanance problems.

Therefore, the aim of the project was designing lighting unit family in an harmony with each other and with the natural and architectural environment of the campus by using LED as light source.

Mockup of armature.

Styrofoam and paper based models were made to have feedbacks from users to decide on forms and funtions of the products.


Creating a flat surface at front side of the product helps to reflect light and improves energy efficiency.

The streamlined design of top parts of the products allow wind flow around them, so that the heat caused by LEDs can be decreased fastly. Moreover, the organic and streamlined design of top parts helps snow or water fall down from the product easily.

Baiga Baiga is a bag designed for designers. It is capable of carrying tools needed for designers, and it can be used in various ways and brings designers ease.


Approach Adjustability Designers live actively and they need to use their bags many times while walking or standing during the day. That is why, they need adjustability and easy access to their bags.

Maglimpo Maglimpo is designed for improving eďŹƒcieny and ergonomics in production line, in Schneider Electric’s factory.

Approach Injection moulded products come with excess materials. This excess materials are called “burr”.

These burrs are cleaned by operators manually after taking products from injection press machine.

Parts that need to be cleaned.

Operator’s position does not allow him to see the parts needs to be cleaned easily.

Cleaning operation is so important because remaining uncleaned burrs on the product are really sharp and causing hand cuts in assembly line. Moreover, cleaning operation is done in at least 17 seconds and ergonomically problematic especially for short workers.

Ergonomically problematic shoulder posture and the tool used for operation.

The aim of the project is solving ergonomic problems in the process and improving the time efficiency.

Burrs occur on a section line, so only an exact line should be cleaned.


This is a prototype made of PLA by using 3D Printing. This product reduces the required moves to clean the burrs. Operator should just align the product and then turn it horizontally only once.

Link for usage: Link for animation:

Thanks to Maglimpo ... 14 Hours gain obtained for each week.

Burrs are cleaned well and risks are reduced.

Workers’ pains are reduced caused by workload.

Tool reďŹ nances itself less than a week.

This project was presented to the managers in Manisa plant and after their admiration, it was also presented to the managers from Center plant, France.

Lignum Lignum is a decorative furniture and lighting unit designed for interior usage by using waste wood as material.


Otporan Otporan is a package designed for protecting Turkish traditional tea glasses from damages.



External forces were causing many tea glasses cracking on shelves. Therefore, the aim of the project was designing a package for tea glasses to keep them stable and safe only by using cardboards and no glue. It was tried to make the package suitable for industry. While doing it, it was aimed to have less material, low cost, easy setting, suitableness for storage and attractiveness.

Layout of the package and package itself.

It can be set in 25 seconds by hand. It can be stored easily thanks to its rectangular shape.

This package had dropped from 2 meters and saved all glasses from cracking.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my portfolio.
