Crafting Neighbourhood: Unmediated Design in Istanbul
Made in Sishane
Project by Asli Kiyak Ingin

The district of Sishane—located within walking distance of the Galata Greek School—has for decades been the epicentre of a network of designers, producers and retailers centred on lighting. Face to face interactions and unmediated design processes utilise the dense neighbourhood as their communication system: the clustering of activities facilitates the maintenance of old relationships allows for new creative practices to emerge.
