Begum and Bike Ayaskan are twin artists with a background in design and architecture. They founded Studio Ayaskan in 2015 upon graduating from the Royal College of Art. The studio creates time-based objects and artworks with the experimental and poetic use of materials, technologies and crafts.

Studio Ayaskan’s works are driven by their love, passion and longing for nature. With an experimental approach the works convey elements of nature, bringing life to objects and spaces through technology, light and mechanical explorations. With a conceptual approach, the practice merges notions such as time and transformation, in order to create elements of wonder and to bring a sense of connectedness with nature through art and design.

Studio Ayaskan, is an alumni of the Designer’s in Residence program at the Design Museum in London. Their work has won the 2016 Lexus Design Awards, the Design Council’s Spark Innovation Fund, and has been widely published in internationally renowned press including Icon Magazine, New York times, Financial Times, Wallpaper and Dezeen.
