Based in Istanbul, Autoban is one of the most sought-after design studios worldwide. Founders Seyhan Özdemir and Sefer Çağlar create gorgeous furniture pieces and spectacular interiors at the nexus between Asia and Europe, tradition and modernity—a fitting reflection of the city in which they live and work and whose contemporary landscape their design now defines.
This book presents a rich selection of Autoban’s breathtaking projects that are documented in striking photographs and plans. The distinctive concepts for restaurants, hotels, apartments, offices, and retail spaces showcase the studio’s worldview between global cosmopolitanism and its own cultural idiosyncrasies. Insightful texts give further insight into Autoban’s creative process and philosophy.
