Read Sude Edebali's story on i-D

Designed with both form and function in mind Mimesis is an intuitive air purifier designed to adapt to different living spaces and to foster positive engagement between user and product.



ARTSTHREAD:How did you get into your creative field - tell us about your background?
Sude Edebali: I trained as an industrial designer in Istanbul. However, I think I stepped into creativity long before that. As a child, I had the habit of deconstructing and constructing common things, seeking change to make things better.

ARTSTHREAD:What motivates you creatively?
Sude Edebali: As a person, I am quite curious and eager. The passion for imagining how we can shape things differently and asking many questions motivates me. Often, I find myself so impatient to find the answers to those questions and this drives me to get out of my comfort zone and be more creative.

ARTSTHREAD: What does winning this award mean to you?
Sude Edebali: As a result of the Covid-19, not having a physical show to engage with an audience was unfortunate. Winning this award would be a great honor, not only because it is one of the most international competitions to show great diversity in the projects, but also it is a celebration of all the hard work put into the projects during such an uncertain time.

ARTSTHREAD: What’s next?
Sude Edebali: I've been living in London for two years for my master's studies. And I'm thrilled by all the opportunities and inspiration it provides me. So, I will pursue my design career in London as a freelance designer aiming to work with various studios as well as continuing my self-initiated projects.

Stay tuned as ARTS THREAD announces the other judges' vote winners in the Product, Architecture and Interiors category of the i-D x ARTSTHREAD Global Design Graduate Show.
