Yellowdot is a design studio led by Bodin Hon & Dilara Kan, working with products, lighting, furniture & spaces.
Since meeting at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan, they have combined their contrasting backgrounds to work coherently across disciplines. Interdisciplinary thinking and the confluence of opposing views are at the heart of the studio, where technology meets traditional crafts, logic meets emotions, art meets science, and East meets West to conceive fantastical new ideas with a sustainable approach toward the future.
Working from their studio in Hong Kong & Istanbul, they collaborate with artisans, industries, manufacturers & brands across Europe to Asia to translate meticulous ideas into production. The studio embraces cross-cultural & interdisciplinary thinking, taking in a diverse spectrum of projects - from product design to spatial design, design consultancy to independent experiments, often transferring knowledge from one field to another and redefining many categories through their design.
