About Me

I am Denizay Apusoglu, a multidisciplinary designer who is fascinated by doing hands-on conceptual work. I am exploring the ways of being in the world, in communication with material and spatial relationships towards our needs and emotions. 

My focus areas respectively are: product design, design research and digital fabrication. Experimental form finding, material expressions and fictional social interventions are the methods of my creative process to imagine new possibilities. 

Living and working in the countries with different cultural backgrounds helped me develop a critical conscious thinking and quickly adapt and react on new situations. Moreover I’ve had the privilege to be amongst driven and creative people.

I live in Zürich, work as an industrial designer at Geberit and currently laying the foundations of Studio Eidola with Jonas Kissling. I am always willing and eager to create and collaborate!
