ThirtyFive Creative Works founded by designer Ufek Keskin features hi-style conceptual housewares such as the current "flatfold" line. The line is composed of objects that are manufactured and shipped flat then bent, folded or twisted into 3D objects by the user. They are designed to be easily customizable and have a lower environmental impact.

Good design is useful, great design is thoughtful. It considers the basic needs of the user but also the aesthetic, the environmental impact, how the user can and will interact with the object. It takes an ordinary object and reconsiders it, creating new and dynamic possibilities.

Designer Ufuk Keskin, known for his collaboration on the much discussed "Sheetseat" flat folding chairs, is the founder of Thirtyfive Creative Works and creator of it's first line "Flat Objects". The line includes utilitarian objects reconsidered. It incorporates a unique design that engages the user by allowing them to participate in forming the final product and an environmentally aware production that minimizes waste and ships flat to reduce its carbon footprint. The offerings include a sculpture that can be shaped into a vase or displayed as wall art and a bookcase that incorporates your customized text as a shelf when it is folded open.
