Description

With “Dondola”, Defne Koz transforms stainless steel, a material considered “old-fashioned” and “cold,” into powerful objects suitable for a domestic environment. Using new welding technologies to achieve completely seamless volumes, with no part-lines, no visible welding lines and soft transitions, “Dondola” lends metal a gentler appearance, folded into supine curves. For this series, Koz has also introduced laser-cut micro-perforations into her working process, which results in subtle embellishments that add a compelling textural depth to a simple form.

The designer

Profile Photo
Defne Koz
Defne Koz is a leading Turkish designer based in Chicago, Illinois. Active in her native Turkey and throughout Europe more broadly, she maintains an original idea of design that is influenced by her training in the Milan studio of famed Italian designer Ettore Sottsass, as well as by the combination of her Turkish and Italian backgrounds. Her interests span from humanizing new technologies like digital audio systems to rediscovering the tradition of handmade ceramics. She has produced designs for leading design and furniture brands, often assisting them in exploring new territories. For Alessi, she reinterpreted the technique of metal-wire frames; for Guzzini she worked on transferring the qualities of Murano glass into industrial injection molded plastics; for VitrA she proposed hi-tech gel materials for the bathroom environment; and she helped revive the tradition of Iznik ceramics in Turkey. Common to all her projects is her distinctive design language and research into the sensorial qualities of materials.
