Design For Manufacture
Sude Edebali is an Industrial Designer based in London, A soon-to-be graduate from MA Design Products at Royal College of Art.
As a passionate problem-solver, Sude aims to enhance everyday living through products and experiences that can provide meaningful engagements between object, human, and nature.
Embracing a hands-on approach, her work relies on an extensive process of rational thinking, analyzing, and making to challenge the experience of the products both emotionally and functionally.
She won many national design competitions and has been awarded by the Turkish Economy Ministry with full sponsorship to study at RCA.

Design For Manufacture
I believe that challenging times unravel better possibilities for design.
Inspired to be the best that I can, alongside working on my personal projects I look forward to future work opportunities and collaborations.

Light as a medium to communicate air pollution intuitively
Air pollution is one of the most life-threatening challenges of the modern world as it triggers
many diseases such as cardiovascular problems, allergies, asthma attacks, conjunctivitis,
bronchial diseases, lung or skin cancers, and many more.
Indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Mainly in urban cities, where
the average apartment size significantly shrinks, the limited airflow through the window fails to
circulate fresh air inside. So, the management of indoor air highly relies on air purifiers.
"Mimesis" is a personal air purifier, that aims to transform the perception of an air purifier from an
alienated technological device to a warm, expressive well-being object to encourage accurate
With the tests conducted in fully isolated non-human environments, data concerning the room
coverage of air purifiers is usually misleading as most of the air purifiers only work efficiently
when kept in the center of the room.
However, air purifiers are often seen as white-goods; a technical object that the user tends to
hide rather than keeping it near in eyesight.
Therefore many urban dwellers still breathe polluted air even when using an air purifier without
My research highlighted that to promote indoor air quality, it is essential to keep the air purifier in
people's personal space.
Mimesis is a lifestyle-driven domestic air purifier designed to be a portable centerpiece to
promote accurate usage of an air purifier and adapt to different living spaces at home.
With its intuitive, understandable interaction Mimesis aims to foster meaningful engagements
between the user and the object.
The use of more natural and inviting materials seamlessly blends Mimesis into the interior
environment makes technology welcoming and tangible to use.

avoid E-waste generation and encourage a circular economy?"
E-waste is the fastest growing waste stream worldwide and small household appliances
contribute to the biggest proportion of total
E-waste, accounting for more than16.8 Mt of waste each year.
Especially in big cities, where the majority of the E-waste is generated,
the out-dated consumption models fail to adapt to the changing needs of users and promote
unsustainable consumption of small electrical household appliances.
When co-living became the new norm of housing amongst young professionals in urban cities,
people started to live in fully furnished spaces that are widely operated by rental services.
However, when small appliances malfunction, shared rental managers intuitively discard the old
devices and replace them with brand-new ones as current repair services are not reasonable in
terms of time and cost efficiencies. As a result, this wasteful consumption depletes many of the
valuable materials and reduces repair-reuse-recycle flows.
To avoid E-waste generation, subscription-based servitization of small appliances is a sustainable alternative that can create circular product lifecycles and incentivize all stakeholders in the system. As a representation of products as services concept, this project investigates the
design of a pod coffee machine, which is a popularly used and waste generating appliance that
utilizes single-use coffee capsules per each coffee cup.
By using simple sensors IoT enabled predictive maintenance could allow product companies to
control the part performances, and repair them systematically before they fail so they can be
kept in use for extended periods.
By making modular components, old parts can be replaced when necessary without returning
the entire product.
Regularly regenerating the components allows the products to work as good as new all the time
and enhance the customer experience.
Finally, subscribing to an appliance service would decrease the labor of shared rental
businesses by allowing them to monitor products online without manually intervening each
malfunction in numerous flats.
