The Ayse Birsel Collection for FilzFelt is a series of ready-made goods that complement FilzFelt’s existing product line. In deconstructing FilzFelt’s existing design DNA which she describes as ‘purposeful, minimalist, symmetrical, natural, graphic and scalable,’ Ayse has fused her signature aesthetic with traditional influences from her homeland and contemporary design.
Inspired by the minimal fabrication techniques possible with this non-woven textile, Ayse has developed playful designs derived from circles and rectangles. The simple repetition and scaling of these shapes forms intricate patterning and is rendered through the actual form of each product. The Polka Series showcases the simplicity of repetition while the Fringe and Doily Series experiment with scale. Both recall traditional objects and evoke an irreverent humor while staying true to the modern aesthetic.
With user-focused design being a tenet of Ayse’s process, the collection concentrates on meeting an increasing need for adaptable, multi-functional spaces within workplaces and homes while introducing bursts of color and pattern. The interchangeable and complementary products—floor coverings, drapery, hanging panels, and tabletop accessories—add flexibility while softening spaces physically and acoustically. And the bold patterning translates across multiple product categories for a range of mix and match options. But most importantly, the Ayse Birsel Collection for FilzFelt is designed to be loved.
