Today, it is in need of new typologies for presenting the design as designers all over the world play a crucial role in the reconfiguration of ways of sustainable ecosystems. There must be a greater concern for and a deeper understanding of nature, and this will be a holistic approach to design.
The exhibition is structured around three themes which are vital in today's design discourse; upcycling, bringing the local references together with global design language and creative use of space. The exhibition showcases the three selected young Turkish design studios which also present the vibrant design scene of Turkey in the global context by combining the local heritage with the references of contemporary design discourse.
The selected Turkish design studios are coming from diverse fields; founders of Day Studio Doğanberk Demir and Yeşim Eröktem are product designers, Ömer Pekin is an architect and artist, Pınar Akkurt is an artist, designer and maker. Through a wide array of transdisciplinary practices, the exhibition provides an in-depth look into Turkish design context in which designers capture their views on society through the subject matter they explore, the medium and tools they employ as well as the aesthetics they manifest.
