A comprehensive look at Istanbul-based interior designer Zeynep Fadillioglu’s most striking projects, from a modern minimalist mosque to the city’s largest luxury hotel.
Renowned for her striking, multilayered projects that are rich in materials, arts, and crafts, Zeynep Fadillioglu’s interiors express a bold contemporary sophistication and modern understanding of traditional values.
Born and raised in Istanbul, Fadillioglu studied computer science and then art history and design at London’s Inchbald School of Design before setting up her design company in Istanbul. Today, having designed many notable landmarks, she is one of the most sought-after designers both at home and abroad. Her thoughtful, creative, and interdisciplinary approach to interior design bridges history, community, cities, climate, and culture with meticulous attention to detail and to storytelling.
Beautifully printed in Italy, this monograph presents a selection of the designer’s finest projects, revealing the inspiration that has made her work in demand from London and New York to Bombay and Qatar. Written in first person, the volume provides an intimate insight into a uniquely nuanced cross-cultural approach to design that combines classic and contemporary, responding to the complex links between nature, heritage, culture, craft, and art.
The book features never-before-published photographs and captivating original illustrations.
