WEATHERLIGHT is a portfolio of commercial, educational, and experimental projects integrating design, engineering, research, and creative production.
We lead self-initiated projects as well as bespoke collaborations.
Founded 2021 as the commercial practice of designer and computer scientist Dr. Mehmet Aydın Baytaş, WEATHERLIGHT currently harbors three divisions:
- WEATHERLIGHT LABS leads experiments and investigations informed by product design, graphic arts, computer science, social sciences, and more; to explore emerging technologies, design potentials, and novel experiences.
- WEATHERLIGHT ACADEMY promotes design expertise via lectures, courses, books, films, podcasts, articles, and more.
- We offer bespoke SERVICES to innovative partners and collaborators based on trans-disciplinary expertise in design, engineering, education, research, and creative production.
WEATHERLIGHT is founded and led by Dr. Mehmet Aydın Baytaş. We call upon a global network of collaborators for strategic expertise and tactical contributions across different projects.
