Bilge Nur Saltık
Bilge Nur Saltık is a designer from Istanbul, Turkey. She studied Industrial Design and Graphic Design in Yeditepe University. After working for a year she moved to London to do a Masters degree. She completed her MA on the Design Products Course at the Royal College of Art in 2013.
Her approach to design merges culture in a contemporary way. She focuses on the stories behind objects and the human behaviour triggered by objects she designs. Working with traditional craftsmen, she introduces them to new materials, thus utilising their knowledge and techniques but adapting their skills. This results in the invention of original methods for fabricating products that combine the old with the new.
