Digital Age bends the Design Trends

IT Network Magazine

Simpler, more transparent, more fluid... Product designers are constantly trying to free up living spaces and erase unnecessary lines. Industrial designer Mete Mordağ comes up with more fluid, cleaner and more transparent lines by using the most updated technology and materials available in the industry.

Extraordinary aesthetics

When you examine the new generation consumer segment, you see that you are facing a much more conscious consumer first. There is a much more attentive consumer group looking for the highest quality and value for money. Secondly, the new generation is much more aware of the form and aesthetics in product designs. You are faced with a much more selective point of view in this field. In order to attract the new generation of cuts, not only extraordinary materials or extraordinary functions are enough, you have to offer extraordinary aesthetics.

Natural lines in objects

“The screens we come across every day are getting more and more, and all the details outside the image are sorted in order. We counted the days when the TV would be a picture hanging in the middle of the living room. ” Mordağ underlines that there are quite pragmatic and clear reasons why all kinds of goods, vehicles and details around us are more like nature-inspired objects. Since round forms increase the volume / material and strength / material ratios, they are the only designs that can respond to the high efficiency required by the technology after a certain point. For this reason, it is inevitable that technology and design demand fluid lines in the visual evolution.

Digital period ecology

In the digital era, almost everyone travels with a small computer in his pocket. These devices, which are constantly evolving through thousands of new applications designed every day and assuming the duties of the objects around us, are also our camera, recorder, flashlight, pen, notepad ... These computers in our pocket, from other “smart” products we have, from your car to your lighting, from your air conditioner to your printer It allows us to connect and control them.

The rise of modular and compact designs

Saying that the modest and adaptable designs have become one of the most important issues when we consider the shrinking areas, the transported living and work environments, Mordağ speaks of a modular project as follows: “The Pole Industrial Cooking group that we designed for Kayalar, one of our best design awards this year, . Pole is a modular cooking group developed for industrial kitchens with its 750 and 900 series. Thanks to the patented modular structure of the design, Kayalar Mutfak is able to offer the most suitable and most efficient structural solution to each kitchen's architecture with a single product group.

Compact designs are also among the important titles among design trends. The technology, which turns big headphones into tiny points that fit into the ear, is on the edge of being able to integrate data transfer directly into human. In the first half of the 21st century, headphones will also be from historical objects such as gramophone and payphone. All the objects around us follow this path, which goes to dots and then disappear. In this way, we will continue to see portable and crumbling designs even more. Capsule360, which was launched with the motto “the world's most compact camera movement box” designed by Mete Mordağ for Miops Technology, is among these examples. The design broke a record at Kickstarter, funded at $ 600,000.

The future trend is the Smart products

Another trend of the future is smart products that enter our living spaces and begin to shape them. Interactive surface control system developed by Wollox with Mordag’s design signature is one of them. The device has an incredible technology that turns every surface it reflects into a touch area. The area you want to turn into a touchpad can be a big stage wall, a screen of any size, a wall of your home, the location of your children's room or a meeting table in the cafe. Whatever comes to your mind ...

WeWalk, the world's smartest walking stick developed by YGA and Vestel engineers for the visually impaired and whose industrial design is undertaken by Mete Mordağ, is a great example of how great technology and good design can create added value for social life. Launched in May last Wewala not only in Turkey, it continues to see great interest worldwide. The smart walking stick project has been deemed worthy of many awards and investments, including the Edison award.
