“ UMUT YAMAC + ENGLISH ARCHITECT AND DESIGNER ”
Umut Yamac grew up and lived in the most cosmopolitan European city with a Turkish heritage. He creates spaces, lights, objects and furnishings, since he graduated from the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, with a systematic emphasis on the relationship with the user. Since 2011 he directs his studio, after working with several famous architects and designers, he offers each of his creations a poetic way of thinking about design, with a reflection on Nature, Kinetics and Time. Among its playful and original lamps, we speak of the Perch Lights series.
This collection designed for MOOOI
, seen for the first time at the Salone del Mobile in Milan in 2016, shows all at once the multiple Yamac memes: more refined lines and materials with brass, movement and kinetics, birds and a multicultural and international perspective of design with a tribute to the origami ancestral tradition and the 1950s lines of the lamps.
