Tatev Yesayan [CA]
Tatev Yesayan is a product designer with a particular interest in lighting and public spaces. Her work is often characterized by simple or complex geometric systems that also create the structural mechanics of the design object. She likes to explore the potential of geometric figures to become modular structures that allow for a play in configuration, thereby becoming interactive and active components of our environment. She researches how modularity, as a driving principle of the design process, can help solve obsolescence related issues, by a constant upgrade of the components rather than of the system itself. Yesayan studied Design at Concordia University and graduated with a minor in Eastern Religions. She bridges her academic interest by studying how superimposing narratives onto the built environment of sacred spaces can create a setting for inner empowerment.
