Bilge Nur Saltic was born in Istanbul, studied Industrial and Graphic Design and completed her MA in Design Products at the Royal College of Art in 2013.

Nur’s work merges disparate cultures in contemporary ways. Working with traditional craftsmen, she introduces them to different materials, thus utilizing their knowledge and techniques whilst originating a fabrication of products combining the old with the new. Nur is particularly interested in the human behaviour and narratives which result from the objects she designs.

Congratulations to Nur on her well deserved award!
