Zero Collection for Uniqka

Jacob de Baan: “I have designed many lamps in different materials like metal and wood, but I had never before designed in leather. Kerem Aris and Merve Parnas took me to their workshop in Istanbul and asked me to design a collection of objects, such as lamps, and objects for the home. I was so excited. For me it was like playing in the kindergarten. The Zero Collection is the result of our collaboration.”
