Born in Istanbul in 1975, Alper Böler studied industrial design at Marmara University. In 2000, following stints at several furniture and interior design companies, Böler co-founded ünal&böler studio, earning praise both at home and abroad.
In 2008, the interiors, furniture and product designer struck out on his own. The launch of his eponymous studio and a debut collection entitled Housework: Design Domesticated, demonstrated Böler’s interest in giving the most efficient and original forms to familiar objects while assigning them multiple functions, and generating novelty and playfulness through common sense problem-solving. Over time, in a city rich with skilled craft and tradesmen, his approach to design and fabrication became collaborative, resourceful and hands-on, and his thinking about aesthetics, both pragmatic and unconventional.
Now based north of San Francisco, Böler continues to focus on design, design development, consulting and overseeing the build-out of a wide range of work from the Aparat studio and workshop. alperboler.com
