New designer for our “Meet the Designer – Biennale di Venezia” This Thursday featuring Beril Cicek, also showed at Homeless Design Exhibition for the collateral event A better world at Serra dei Giardini, Venice.
Her Project ULL is a is a collection of mobile cabinets that works as luggage, to provide a sense of ease for one to transfer their home into different spaces and places. They are made of wool and wood and everything is hand knitted. She gets her inspiration from Icelandic traditional pieces, “Ullarpteysa” the sweater and “Saudskinnskor” the shoe. ULL has been featured in the VOGUE PORTUGAL magazine on the November Issue.
