The site-specific installation for one of London’s most popular public spaces, will showcase the best ceramic products Turkey has to offer. Reflecting the quality, strong design values and innovation of the industry, Adam Nathaniel Furman’s design approach is highly-curated and creative. Commenting on the installation’s design, Furman said:
“From the Ishtar Gate of Babylon, the Safavid facades of Isfahan’s Naqsh-e Jahan Square, and Sinan’s divine Ottoman mosques, to the maiolica cloisters of Santa Chiara in Naples, the gothic terracotta of the soaring Woolworth building in New York, and the famous red glazed ceramic Underground Stations of London, ceramics have always been, and continue to be, both the most historic, resonant and traditional, as well as the most fresh, perpetually surprising, delightful and exciting of architectural materials. There is no other architectural treatment that has remained as fresh and relevant and cool as ceramics has from a thousand years BC, right through into the 21st Century.
Bahadir Kayan, Chairman of Turkishceramics said:
“This is our first year at designjunction and we are excited to be a part of such a fresh and innovative show. Adam Nathaniel Furman’s design for Granary Square is a creative representation of how modern Turkish ceramics products and historical architecture references bring together such a work harmoniously”
Turkishceramics is Main Partner of designjunction at this year’s event. Gateways can be visited at Granary Square in King’s Cross during designjunction from 21-24 September.
