Denizli, where the ESD013 will be manufactured













We were in Denizli yesterday. Currently we are working on our Ecstatic Surface Design 2013, after The Credit Card Collection and Diva Opaque: Anonymous Guardians of Intimacy. The collection will be launched in May, in the new exhibition space of Murat Pilevneli, in Istanbul. A completely different city than Istanbul, but we again managed to be magnetized by utterly chinese fake flowers and decapitated male models.

Contemporary Informational Appendixes

Skeuomorphs are material metaphors, informational appendixes with no real function. Fragments of nostalgia, floating around, dishing out little whispers of comfortability.

From leather wrapping and stitches in cutting-edge apps for the iphone to a handle to small to be grabbed, skeuomorphs are the thalidomide babies of industrial and interface design. They provide reassurance that not all has changed, or, if all has indeed changed, one can still cling to memories and try to negate change.

In the end, some objects go full circle. Floppy disks were first a storage method represented on interfaces and now, even with the functional object gone, they linger on nearly every software interface.

Las Botas Picudas Tribales

Botas picudas, botas vaqueras exóticas or, simply, pointy boots are the dancing apparatus of mexican electronic tribal music dancers. A trend and an ornament originated in small villages, it has crept up its way towards the US – to name a few states, Texas, North Caroline Florida and Mississippi.


Ridiculed by many, the boots are seen as things worn only by chuntaros, the name for northern mexican natives and a derogative term for uncultured lower class citizens. And yet, they are objects of folk craftsmanship, symbols of pride not only for their bearers, but for their creators, always in search of creative solutions on how to make longer and pointier boots.
