Description

The “Ornament” series, based on the interior decoration of Abdülmecid Efendi Mansion, examines the understanding of decoration in Ottoman mansions. Eastern decorations investigated by foreign architects in modern architectural movements of the 19th century are far beyond being a superficial addition. The decorations that come together with the function and meaning constitute one of the unique and strong aspects of Ottoman mansions.

This series, which emerged after a two-year research and trial period, features traditional furniture units such as a sergen, stool, and sini as a modern interpretation of design. Turkish wire embroidery, susma, and hasır techniques were used in the patterns on the furniture pieces, which were constructed together with their functions. The collection’s patterns aim to maintain Turkish cultural heritage by keeping up with today’s lifestyle.

The “Ornament” stool/side table offers a new way to accompany your daily routine.

Products are custom-made and customized variations are also possible to order.
Handmade embroideries and metal craftsmanship are made by Turkish artisans.

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.
