“’I think that Gravity is both comfortable and graceful with its contemporary design character and different size options. You can create a more comfortable and casual setup with lighter fabrics parallel to the dimensions of your space. Also you can move your living spaces to a more elegant dimension with heavier and more frequently textured fabrics. I think Gravity actually has a versatile character that will serve whatever imaginative space we can imagine with its complementary accessories and products. A sofa that is full and built, yet modest, that can carry modern or contemporary manners.’’

What does it mean to design for you?

Design means to draw something in my hand pencil since a very young age, these stories of everyone begins at a child age. I started just like this. My father Fikret Tan is interior designer also. The times in his office or on construction sites during my childhood were memorable and entertaining memories for me as well as they are the experiences and teachings that shaped my life. My design adventure, which first started by imitating my father, gradually matured with the time, then I started to return to myself, and it became my profession after a while.

When you were designing this place, what inspired you?

I started my space design first by imagining a structure that dominates the nature and where the relationship between interior and exterior is extremely transparent. In this space, I preferred the volume richness of the high ceiling in the name of strong space setup just like any designer would do. Rather than merely high ceilings, different angles in the ceiling breaks and parallel material transitions, texture differences, and colour uniformity were the design elements I considered. I think that the existing tissues and surfaces in the space can be perceived better with harmonic integrity between interior and exterior spaces and contrasts surfaces created in parallel to this.

How we should use Gravity Plus Living Room within decoration? And what are the essential components of it?

I think that Gravity is both comfortable and graceful with its contemporary design character and different size options. You can create a more comfortable and casual setup with lighter fabrics parallel to the dimensions of your space. Also you can move your living spaces to a more elegant dimension with heavier and more frequently textured fabrics. I think Gravity actually has a versatile character that will serve whatever imaginative space we can imagine with its complementary accessories and products. A sofa that is full and built, yet modest, that can carry modern or contemporary manners.

What are the outstanding trends of 2019?

Vibrant and bright colours will be more in the furniture now. We will see a lot of space setups in which pastel tones are still popular but blended with neon colours. Lanternshaped lighting designs from different materials such as paper, fabric or glass will be used in many places. Floral patterned fabrics, wallpapers or accessories will be the motifs that we will encounter more.

Again, the hazeran and bamboo knits, which extend from the past to the present day, are settled into our lives with different techniques and colours. In short, I can say that very colourful and dynamic yet a nostalgic atmosphere is waiting for the users
