Design Knowledge Intermediary

In the beginning of their careers; most of the designers has an idol or mentor. For many designers, especially in Turkey, one of the inspirations is absolutely Ayse Birsel. She is an empathy driven designer who loves to solve problems and create innovation. Although she has been called "Queen of Toilets" for her work for TOTO, right now it is not too much to say that she is "Queen of the Design", for her user-centered, dichotomy-shifting, humanitarian designs.
