The legacy of Emir Uras’s architectural training and his focus on form are evident in his design for the “Whatamai” shelf. Its abstract forms are curved and floating, evoking a sense of unlimited space; an interest in exploring, through abstraction, the dissonance between space that is lived and space that is intangible — the space of the cyber world, for example — characterizes Uras’ work. It is also reflected in his methodology, as he transforms his drawings and paintings into 3D computer images and then fabricates them in material form. While the “Whatamai” shelf’s long, disc-like forms evoke an ambient world, its solid materiality, hand-crafted in walnut, root it in the physical.

URAStudio is an Istanbul-based architecture and design practice set up by Emir Uras in Los Angeles in 1995, and relocated to Istanbul in 1998. Designing buildings, interiors, furniture and products, the studio's body of work spans a broad range of scales and typologies, from mixed-use buildings to restaurants, galleries, health clubs, private houses, hotels, and retail spaces, as well as yacht interiors. Informed by his training in architecture, Uras has a unique appreciation and understanding of the language of form, material, space, proportion, geometry, color and light; this drives him, for each of his projects, to create a vehicle that enhances and deepens our experience of living. A bespoke approach is crafted and initiated for each project, which is pursued as a unique collaboration between the studio team and the client.
