Istanbul, Turkey as my hometown is a source of inspiration for my many projects. By living in a city that connects Europe to Asia, I was exposed to many cultures and ideas from an early age. As for the coffee table, where people sit around and share many ideas for many hours, I wanted to bring the idea of merging cultures on one object which can unite different people from diverse cultural backgrounds.
The metal structure of the table is 1:38 scaled down version of the original Bosphorus Bridge in Istanbul that connects the two continents.
