3 QUESTIONS FOR: Ottan | IsolaDD

Designer's Name: Ayşe Yılmaz Design Studio: OTTAN 1. What's your mantra every morning when you wake up? Today is gonna be a great day! I trust the flow in the universe, and I I trust my self-power. 2. We are in a delicate moment globally, how has your job changed due to the Coronavirus? Two weeks ago, I rented a new atelier, bought machines and hired 4 people to bring my biggest project to life professionally. Everything was wonderful and we were highly motivated since then. However Coronavirus spread over the world and many things changed in a very short while... We work from home right now, can not do production and all of the events are canceled so that we can not do marketing activities.

3 QUESTIONS FOR: Wisse Trooster | IsolaDD

© Jeroen Van Der Wielen Designer's Name: Wisse Trooster 1. The 3 books that every designer should read. N°1: John Maeda 'The Laws of Simplicity' Loved the SHE principle: Shrink, Hide and, Embody.

N°3: Alexander Osterwalder & Yves Pigneur 'Business Model Generation' I believe that a lot of designers, including myself, can benefit from a business boost! A lot of great designs are being made but we need the business part as well to be able to grow.. This book provides gre

3 QUESTIONS FOR: Enrico Iori | IsolaDD

Designer's Name: Enrico Iori Design Studio: WEarch_maps 1. What are you working on right now? WEarch_maps. A project of maps/guides on European cities at the forefront of architecture and design.

I'm currently working on the WEarch_maps in Milan. Porto, Basel and Rotterdam are already available. And many others are in the pipeline. 2.

3 QUESTIONS FOR: Rik Makes | IsolaDD

Designer's Name: Rik Makes 1. Where do you get your inspiration from? Walks in the Mind, intrigued by the surrounding landscape of trees, berry's, insects, funghi, ants and other insects. 2. The 3 books that every designer should read. N°1: Humankind - Rutger Bregman N°2: Ascent of Money - Niall Fergusson N°3: Design as Art - Bruno Munari 3. What's your mission? My mission is to connect back to our surrounding landscape. Currently I notice a disconnection of the folks around me, living in the city, with the landscape that gives us everything necessary to sustain a living in that city. I don't feed back what I take from our landscape. My trash goes to a combustion facility where everything is

3 QUESTIONS FOR: Gianmaria Della Ratta | IsolaDD

Designer's Name: Gianmaria Della Ratta Design Studio: Studio Gianmaria Della Ratta 1. Where do you get your inspiration from? Inspiration, especially in the creative field, can be found everywhere. Everything that surrounds us or is part of our imagination can be a source of inspiration for a new project. Personally, I am very interested in production processes. How is something born? With what materials? What are the secrets behind an object? I like to observe what is not visible to our eyes. Like when I used to take toys apart as a child to see what was inside them. I often start from these processes to find inspiration, manipulate them, make them mine and then use them to create something

3 QUESTIONS FOR: Studio Sluijzer | IsolaDD

Designer's Name: Robin Sluijzer Design Studio: Studio Sluijzer 1. The 3 books that every designer should read. I recommend every designer, at one point in time, to take the time and look into Neufert Architect's Data. This is my bible, full of essential references for design. Written from a building point it still gives you tools and concepts that can be the base of every piece of design. Looking into new ways of living and housing combined with my love for bamboo, I would suggest Grow Your Own House. It elaborates on the extremely cost-effective and durable way you can construct with bamboo. The last book I would recommend is not published yet ... because I am still writing it. It's the sto

3 QUESTIONS FOR: Aurore Piette | IsolaDD

Designer's Name: Aurore Piette Design Studio: Aurore Piette Studio 1. Where do you get your inspiration from? Nature & Craft: My main inspiration is my close environment, nature, and my unique workshop, the ocean.

Also, as craftswoman of the sea, I establish my own techniques, those are also inspired by ancestral craft. 2. The 3 books that every designer should read. N°1: The Unknown Craftsman, Yoesti Yanagi, empowers craft, products and makers as social actors. N°2: Wabi Sabi, for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers, Leonard Koren, redefines the notion of beauty and releases us from

3 QUESTIONS FOR: Dorian Etienne | IsolaDD

Designer's Name: Dorian Etienne 1. Where do you get your inspiration from? I think the raw material of creation is the world around us. We create and take inspiration from our experiences, our exchanges with other people, our passions, from what makes us vibrate internally. Thus I take my inspiration from my environment : whatever the place or the moment I always have in a part of my head a different look on things, a kind of continual questioning. A ramble in the forest, a film extract, a failed drawing, a material experiment.Thoughts intersect, mix up, reflect itselves and often generate intuitions and new ideas. Then remains the hard step... sort it out! 2. What are you working on right n
