Description

The feature that distinguishes the “Espresso Cup Seljuk” from other coffee cups is the geometry of their handles. Their source of inspiration is the rich ornamental designs in Anatolian Seljuk madrasahs.

This era is one of designer Hülya Öz’s favorites to explore and examine the geometric compositions. These compositions attract Öz so strongly, she feels that these patterns hold the codes of the universe and she would love to understand them more deeply. As a coffee lover, Öz prefers to see the color effect of what drink is in the cup. Therefore, her preference is off-white. In Turkish traditions, drinking coffee is a habit shared by two people – this is why these designs are sold in sets of two.

Gökmedrese (13th-century), an educational institution named for the sky-blue tiles. Of all Seljukid work in Anatolia, it is the one that Hülya Öz is most impressed by. Also, known as Sahibiye, referring to Sahip Ata, located in Sivas (central Anatolia).

GÖKMEDRESE
gök = sky, medrese =madrasah (in Turkish)

Each “Espresso Cup Seljuk” are made by hand, shaped with a mold one by one. Therefore, the shapes may differ minimally.

“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...’’
