My Name is Axelle Like Axl Rose Avatar


In Why Design, a new video series, we explore the world through the eyes of our designers, and share something of why we value their point of view.

Ayse Birsel has been designing her life since moving from Turkey in 1989 to study design at Pratt in New York. Ayse believes that design thinking can lead to the “life you love.” She designed the Resolve System for Herman Miller in 2000. Ayse and her husband Bibi Seck are currently at work on new products for The Herman Miller Collection.
