 TILES AND THE BOX

This team of tiles coming in its package is an Istanbul souvenir. Istanbul is full of objects, people, noise, colors, traffic and etc. At first it is desired to reflect this chaos in the souvenir designs.

Specific objects special for Istanbul like Galata Tower, the mosques, Akbil are turned into funny kitsch objects like an umbrella in the shape of a mosque, a kettle dressed in belly dance costume and etc. 

From these drawings a pattern is created - representing images known to people that like to look beyond the obvious touristic attractions- and applied to a team of ceramic tiles.

The pattern also resembles the overlapping and repetitious texture of the city of Istanbul.
If you get one piece of ceramic tile, you will have one piece including many things of Istanbul. Designed together with T. Asselbergs.
