FOSSIL.IZ About /
Izgi Erik (1993) is a product designer and founder of a young and innovative design based in Milan and Izmir. She is a recent MA Product Design graduate and she works across the fields of interior design and product design. Her design concepts are driven by a historical approach of her family business and innovative material research for sustainability.
Her project “FOSSIL.IZ” connects research of materials with design: an innovative created material that is produced by the existing remains of metal shredding and a base material that can differ (concrete, or transparent material as polyester). Her aim is to build up the idea of sustainability in the world of design by representing a design that is composed of used materials. She wants to show the after life of materials: how they are shaped after process; or are they available to be used again, and to reach that goal she founded FOSSIL.IZ.
