NOTE:

Useful Living is a further development of Useful Arbeitsloser (Jobless). It has been influenced by classic Danish furniture, design philosophy and details in his refinement of the project.

Useful Arbeitsloser (Jobless) is a series of furniture that reflects the life of its designer. A scaffolding resembled a life of a designer who lives in a foreign country in a way that it is always passed by, constructed and moved away without much attention, while being a necessary element in construction sites. Useful Arbeitsloser (Jobless) is assembled pieces of furniture. The brass joints symbolize the weight of life and the act of screwing the joints is a part of a life to create comfort. While life becomes heavy and our space of living gets more spacious, the furniture we have around us are getting lighter and feels more indifferent. The form and structure of Useful Arbeitsloser (Jobless) is a story of nomad, imperfect lives and furniture of the contemporaries.
