Dijkstra created the YER project, meaning 'place', 'ground' or 'local', with textile designer Borre Akkersdijk for the SALON/Istanbul show during the 2012 Istanbul Biennial.

Their collaborative project, shown at the Mavra café in Istanbul, was inspired by traditional seating places and teahouses where people sit close to the floor.
