Turkish culture in the Netherlands is most commonly depicted via Kebab shops. As chefs, designers and architects we want to showcase the dynamism of Turkish design as it touches the very fabric of society and shapes ideas, environments and interactions, both intimate and public.
The event will feature a series of Turkish designers, from established brands, to the developing talent. The works will include pieces from the designers existing repertoire as well as unique prototypes made specifically for this event. The main exhibition hall will showcase the physical objects, art, graphics and video works from the artists. The products will range from paintings, textiles, ceramics, woodwork, digitally printed models, architectural concept posters and videos.
