The story behind Cukurcuma Armchair by Kamil Taner’s own words:

I was walking in the beautiful nostalgic streets of Cukurcuma, a soho like spot in Istanbul once home to a large Byzantium community and the Ottoman’s dating back to 1200’s. This mystical place still having buildings from that period filled with antique shops, art galleries and handcrafted accessories gave me the inspiration to design an armchair that is a blend of history and present. I am also in love and constantly ispired by the legendary furniture designers such as Paul Evans, Jean Prouve, Paul Kjaerholm, Alvar Aalto, Hans J Wegner. I asked myself if one of the old master designers were in my shoes what would they have done. At that point I decided to make Cukurcuma Armchair with antique wood from early 1830’s with a blend of contemporary design.
