Umut Yamac is a London based architect and designer with Turkish heritage. Born in 1980, he went on to graduate from the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL with a distinction in design and then worked for a number of internationally renowned architects and designers before establishing his own practice in 2011. He works on a diverse range of projects from the scale of the object to the architectural. The common thread that unites each piece is the emphasis placed on the relationship with the user; and the desire to offer different levels of engagement, from purely functional to the playful and imaginary. He currently has a collaboration with renowned, if but slightly eccentric, design firm Moooi.
