Design in our contemporary world dives into a pool of interdisciplinary and creative platforms; on this note, Nohlab studio is a multidisciplinary design studio focused on producing immersive experiences for the public, experimenting with art, design and technology. They build a bridge between the digital and the physical realities while examining the relationship of technology with art and design. It produces tools, designs and stories in which the connection between the human and technology reflects in many different ways.
In 2011 Candaş Şişman and Deniz Kader founded the studio, thus transitioning to a participative and sharing design process approach that started with taking a creative journey in search of the project’s ‘distinctive’ element; while they created their stories establishing a mutual relation between the perceptions and experiences.
Candaş Şişman and Deniz Kader avoid imagery and direct expression and intertwine knowledge production with experiences in their works with the aim that participants will discover a different experience every time and share their encounterings after having experienced the studio’s work. Part of their extensive design portfolio is the studio’s solo exhibition, a project titled – FLOW, AN EXPERIENTIAL JOURNEY. The installation was showcased to the public in 2021, in AKM, Istanbul, where a light-sound-motion-space experience was presented, allowing the viewer to dive into an immersive experience in 3 parts – Gate, Moment and Trace.
Another exhibition – EVERYTHING – had its premiere at Atelier des Lumières in Paris & Bassin des Lumières in Bordeaux in 2021. It consisted of a 10 minutes immersive experience that showcased everything as it was; this meant that the viewers had the power to observe everything as they saw fit.
