‘’Built in a single-storey building in the garden, the fireplace where natural sandblasted textured stone is used, serves as a separator while serving the dining area and lounge area in front of glass. The fireplace, which comes out of the large glass opening in the ceiling, together with the large openings facing the garden, ensures that both areas receive optimum daylight. We created a balanced space by combining the dominant clarity of white and black with the warm and pastel tones of marble and wood.’’

What does it mean to design for you?

For Wangan, design is a phenomenon that has to incorporate the concepts of being innovative, intelligent, courageous and timeless. When designing a space, product or experience, we care about using materials and details that have never been tried, produced or encouraged. In our opinion, the thing that makes a design unique and valuable is its ability to move its users, viewers and industry forward and force them to move. We can change existing perceptions and systems as long as we can leave permanent traces.

When you were designing this place, what inspired you?

When designing the space, the most important issue was to filter the daylight in the most accurate way and to reflect it in the optimum way. We created a balanced space by combining the dominant clarity of white and black with the warm and pastel tones of marble and wood.

How we should use Netha Dining Room within decoration? And what are the essential components of it?

In our opinion, Netha Dining Room is a product that balances its simple design with its strong details, so the space where the product itself is used must be simple but effective. When we look at the design and space of the product as a whole, Netha Dining Room will reveal itself correctly in modest spaces that are stimulated with natural coloured materials, vivid colours and decorative products.

What are the outstanding trends of 2019?

As Wangan, the most important trend that has not changed for us is timelessness. Seeing that our designs are up-to-date and remarkable after many years is the subject that we focus on when we are working on design.
