PIMPOLLO
by Gloria Rubio for Arta Ceramica

Pimpollo picked by ÖZLEM TUNA

It’s a great idea to bring two materials together. I love the shape of the coffee pot. I’m drawn to it because it’s an object I think I would enjoy using at home

OP-vase
by Form&Seek

OP-Vase picked by ÖZLEM TUNA

I like the coloured glass with its faceted surface. It’s great that you can see the reflections of the flower from the outside.

PIXELATE and HERRINGBONES
by String Theory

I really like the combination of black and white in general. I think the pixelated texture is quite exciting.

COMÈTE
by Bipède

COMÈTE picked by ÖZLEM TUNA

Involving the user in the design process is really clever. Being able to shape the lamp according to your own imagination is a good idea.

AVO Lamp
by Johannes Scherr for Grüne Erde

AVO Lamp picked by ÖZLEM TUNA

A really beautiful, simple and clean piece. A lamp like a timeless piece of jewellery.
