Description

The “Firfir” stool series was conceived through a collaboration with Italian shoe designer Diego Dolcini, who is best known for his women’s shoe designs for the luxury market that are sensual and elegant, balancing heights, beautiful lines and high quality materials. This series emerged out of Sema Topaloğlu’s interpretation of Dolcini’s design as a complementary aesthetic in craft that is part of her eccentric-yet-modern approach to design. The stools were conceived by Topaloğlu as experiments in handcraft and form in wood exhibited in Dolcini’s Milano showroom and shop. Firfir 1 was the first of 6 uniquely crafted stools, each of which was made by Topaloğlu and her in-house team carpenters at her Istanbul studio. Sculpted from massive blocks of wood, the exceptional craftsmanship evident in each unique Firfir is part of Topaloğlu’s original contemporary aesthetic that draws from Istanbul’s ancient craft traditions.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
