Ayse Oren is a multidisciplinary artist, architect, and designer.  Her works are on the contemporary and conceptual side that includes abstract art, sculpture, furniture and product design, graphic design, and presentations.  Educated as an architect, her broad interests span such fields as history, philosophy and psychology, and space architecture.

Ayşe draws from a broad set of discourse to allow their confluence to evolve, infuse and generate designs which are universal in nature and in principle function on the aesthetic, psychological and utilitarian level. All good design should convey their beauty, meaning and function.

Education

After finishing the high school at TED Ankara College Foundation Schools, she studied Architecture, Interior Architecture and Environmental Design at Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey and graduated in 2006.

Career

She was the first designer to be accepted into a Technopark (Boğaziçi University). Her works connect art and technology, drawing it into research and development. She aims to build an interdisciplinary system, create new products combining technology and design, while meeting requirements.  She adopts multi-disciplinary approaches, by interpreting them based on cultural experience and future needs.

She collaborates with a team combining disciplines and backgrounds. Topics include environmental awareness, energy efficiency, smart cities and the Internet of Things (IoT)

She embarked on a project titled ‘Smartables’ that converts living spaces into comfortable, safe and manageable areas. She aims to build somatosensory bridges between cities and people.

She created the company DesignArt, the first design company established with the Techno Initiative capital support provided by the Ministry of Industry. As one of the founding companies of the Boğaziçi University Technopark, it is the first design company accepted to the Technopark.  The founding objective of DesignArt is to link design, art, and science, to ensure that design is accepted as part of the research and development activities, create new products to meet new requirements through establishing a multi-disciplined system transcending technology and design, and to develop new and universal understanding, perception and language of art.  Design is a part of development and has important role in the course of human evolution.

Ayşe’s Philosophy

Art is a type of research done for different needs and is also done with different goals.  It is revealing the cover looking behind the curtain really trying to understand the very basic and core questions of our life and our existence. The is similar to how physicists build their big tunnels to have the atoms flying around because they want to go to the next step of truth. Every artistic work has to do with this search for the rules, digging and understanding what is behind our existence.
