'More Than Design' was a workshop as part of Istanbul Design Biennial. The workshop focused on Şişhane district which has a small-scale production network. Working on a small-scale production district gives an opportunity to produce easily and quickly an individual product range. Related to the workshop, the design objects will be developed for the exact locations in around the Galata, Tunel and Şişhane squares which is close to the District. Tunel Passage where we were on, used to have dynamic, cosy, lively, friendly atmosphere with full of lights instead of today's empty and out of decoration aspect before a few neighbors started to complain about the over planting and the over illumination. To remove the cause of complaint, municipal directed to the owners to take off the plants, lights. Bringing back to the passage the nature/jungle that was taken away. Creating a lighting installation hanging from the ceiling which is made by wireframes fixing each other like tree branches. When it's dark, wires' shadows reflect to the walls. Beside, the whole shape is clear half-sphere with a random and free wire ending. The shell is related with the architectural aspect: half sphere corresponds the arcs in the entrance.

Technical Drawing.

IDEA: Differentiated by the needs of lighting such as reading light, dim light etc. To give direction to the light, the lambshade part is composed of six modules which allows movements on the lambshade. To move the modules together, it got shaped onto one another. Thereby, either up or down, the light can be directed. Bowtie-shaped geometry of the

The physical effects of the love can be described by 'butterflies in the stomach'. These kind of momentary feelings such as sitting on one-leg-short chair happens in our daily lifes. To make the people feel on that way, like they are flutter, i made a bench for two. Bottom surface has 3 degree angles from both sides and in the 3

middle surface touches the ground which really hard to notice.If only one sits, the bench moves aside of the weight. If two sit, the bench can/cant be balanced. This dilemma also express the idea that love is not always for two.

The aim was to make a bug by using old stuff which is bought from a scrap dealer. All the parts are made from a typewriter except its head. The head is made from an oil can.
