Description

Drinking coffee with your loved ones is a ritual in Turkish culture. It is said that “a shared cup of coffee will be remembered for 40 years” . This is the reason why the “Arch of Sinan” Coffee Cups by ZOYA Istanbul, are sold as a set of two.

With a global design view, I am using local cultural elements as an advantage to create unique products. As I am working with Turkish craftsmen in a way that allows me to be freer in the use of symbols and icons in my design pieces.
Everyone pushes and expands each other’s limits in the production phases; where design, technology and craftsmen skills walk hand in hand under the knowledge which is inherited from our ancestors.

These pieces are created with an admiration for the 16th century great architect Sinan’s work. The unusual way Sinan used and refined classical architectural elements always attracted my attention. As a native of historic Istanbul, the use of similar forms is an outcome of my visual memory.

The porcelain part of the cup may contain some curvatures at the top. Please be aware that the pieces are all handmade. Manufacturing these components using classic materials such as porcelain and glass, represents Hülya Öz’s passion for craftsmanship. The fact that there are still many craftsmen and workshops in Istanbul is an opportunity for cooperation that the designer has engaged in formal and technical terms.

“It’s not easy for a design without a story to appeal to the eye. Whatever story the viewer is able to unite with, that’s what the eye chooses.” Hulya Oz Coming to life through Hulya Oz’s architectural and aesthetic touch, ZOYA Istanbul with its unique balance and stories attached, finds us with the creative claim of maturing over the years. As the founder and designer of the brand ZOYA Istanbul, Oz’s intention with her first collection ‘Geometry of the Universe’ is to appeal to women who value independence. At the core of her designs there is a common geometrical language that has been based on different geographies of the world, mainly Turkey, Anatolia. Each and every design is formed with Oz’s experiences, emotions and her excitement of expression. For those who wish to deepen their understanding of architectural culture beyond what is seen and those who desire to have meaning behind their aesthetic decisions, ZOYA Istanbul presents us with products that refine and symbolise the ways of the universe, balance and harmony. Oz states, “My decision making process as I was choosing a time period and a visual representation for my  collection was not formed by a longing for the past but was rather reinforced by my desire to carry on the wisdom of then to the now, and translate it to the future. Cultural profundity, underlining wisdom and aiming to remove degeneration between generations... ‘Arch of Sinan’ is a collection about understanding these notions and depicting them to those who are interested...’’
