Made Out of WHAT


Vedat Ulgen of Thislexic

“I like to push the boundaries of what a material can do--and  eventually become.”

Vedat Ulgen lets the material guide his designs. 
Most of Thislexik's creations are inspired by products that people are used to seeing and how they are constructed and flipping that concept on it's head. What you see is not what you get.



Vedat Ulgen is a Brooklyn-based designer. After graduating from Pratt Institute, he founded Thislexik in early 2014. He is particularly drawn to experimenting with new technologies and using materials in unconventional ways. Ulgen approaches every aspect of design, ranging from the scientific to the artistic with a touch of humor, as evident in his clever, yet functional designs.
