FUNCTIONAL AND UTOPIC DESIGNS
Students of Izmir University of Economics (IUE), Faculty of Fine Arts and Design graduated with their futuristic design projects. As IUE Rector Prof. Dr. Oğuz Esen viewed each project, he tested the folding electric scooter designed by Egemen Yenikale, student of IUE Department of Industrial Design. 147 students from Departments of Industrial Design, Visual Communication Design, Interior Architecture and Environmental Design, Architecture, and Fashion and Textile Design within the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design have taken steps into the professional life.
Prof. Dr. Oğuz Esen stated that the students’ creativity was best revealed in their projects when there were not any boundaries in regard to their thoughts. He said, “Our students focused on functional and utopic studies, they looked for answers for problems. There is a conceptual enrichment. They will be using their creativity in their professional lives as well.”
‘Future Will Be Shaped by Design’
Prof. Dr. Ender Yazgan Bulgun, Dean of IUE Faculty of Fine Arts and Design, stated that they believed that the future of the world will be shaped through design. “Every year we bring young designers into the sector that creatively find solutions, and aim for design nationally and globally. Our students display product of their 4 year labor in the exhibition, said Prof. Dr. Bulgun.
‘Design Solution for Transportation’
Prof. Dr. Esen, who got information about each project from the students, got a chance to test the folding electric scooter designed by Yenikale. Giving information about his project, Yenikale said that he designed his folding electric scooter which he named as “Aias Ds-e” for city youth who uses public transportation to go to school or work. Yenikale said the following about his project:
“Due to high population density, even public transportation vehicles have difficulty in meeting the needs. Ds-e allows its users a 40km travel route in cities with well-established roads. Public transportation rules ban any bicycles or scooters due to lack of space, some metros there is a separate place for them. Therefore, due to its folding ability, Ds-e is as small as a carry-on bag, and easily fits the trunk of a car. It is made up of aluminum composite, and with its 3 kilo lithium-ion battery, it gets as heavy as a regular bike. My design is an alternative transportation vehicle.”
