During New York Design Week, the American Turkish Society is staging the show Design:Istanbul-NY where a selection of contemporary Turkish designs is going to be exhibited. Tulûat kilim designed by Koray Ozgen is among the creations picked by an international panel.

Tuluat kilim

Tulûat, rug (kilim)

Design Koray Ozgen for DHOKU, 2012.
Handwoven, organic handspun wool, 155x215cm.

Tulûat is about transforming and recording the common mind of the designer and the weaver into a notation - a process which the designer starts and the weaver completes without referring to any preset scheme. The mind and the hand rids the object from patterns, knots and hidden in exchange for the freedom of colors and loose ended threads.
This recontextualization updates/redefines the relationship between the designer and the weaver. Surplus material spontaneously finds new use (life) in this object, in an attempt to search new ways in sustainability. It is also about attributing the object with a quality of 'another' sense of locality and cultural sustainability where the rural and urban meets.
Tulûat rug nominated in the floor covering category for Elle Decoration International Design Awards 2013 by Elle Decor Turkey. Awarded as the Best Floor Covering Design by Elle Decor in Turkey, Tulûat featured in "Notations: An Exhibition of Kilim Recordings", a parallel event of the Istanbul Design Biennial organized by IKSV (İstanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts).
Tuluat will be on display in "Design: Istanbul-New York" exhibition organized by The American Turkish Society within the "WantedDesign" international design exhibition, in New York City from May 17-20, 2013. Running with International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), this year's event will be held at the landmark Terminal Stores Building on 11th Avenue between 27th and 28th Streets

Cuisine primitive par Caroline Sallé dans "Le Figaro et vous" - 14 octobre 2010
"On les croirait presque sauvages, comme ramassés à même le sol, patinés au soleil, à peine taillés.
Simplissimes, les ustensiles de cuisine "Toolives" du designer Koray Ozgen ont été conçus
à partir de bois récupéré lors de l'élagage d'oliviers de la côte égéenne d'Anatolie.
Couverts à salade, pinceaux à graisser, spatules et bol apéritif sont autant de pièces uniques
qui ont permis aux précieuses branches de en pas finir en fumée. Le recyclage a décidément du bon."

Primitive cuisine by Caroline Sallé in "Le Figaro et vous" - October 14th, 2010
"They feel as almost wild, as if picked up directly from the ground, tainted by the sun and hardly carved.
Simple "Toolives" kitchen utensils from designer Koray Ozgen have been designed from wood collected
from pruned branches of Olives trees from the Aegean shores of Anatolia. Salad servers, cooking brushes,
spatulas and appetizer bowls are unique pieces that came to life and thus saving precious branches
from ending up in ashes. Tasteful recycling."

She is mentioning our Astéroïde 2004 vases . It is also pleasant to hear that they own an Astéroïde lamp which was designed by Koray for Innermost . Other objects standing next to Astéroïde completing their closet office are artwork by Martha McQuade, some Ikea objects and a Kartell Componibili unit. Nice combination!
