About Design Lab

The Koç University Design Lab, part of the Koç University – Arçelik Research Center for Creative Industries, was founded under the Department of Media and Visual Arts at Koç University, with the aim of developing future media, products and spaces.

Research at the Design lab is conducted collaboratively with Koç University’s College of Engineering and Psychology Department. Our research partners include the Optical Microsystems Lab.

The Design Lab also collaborates with researchers from Mälardalen University in Västeras, Sweden; and Aalto University‘s Media Lab and Sound and Physical Interaction Research Group in Helsinki, Finland.

Current research at the Design Lab focuses on interaction design. Our projects aim to develop novel technologies and methodologies that add value to related industries, primarily in Turkey.
