After graduating from Rhode Island School of Design, the co-founders of 15 West, Ekin Varon and Begum Cemiloglu, worked in some of Turkey’s leading architectural and furniture design firms, which focused on providing hospitality, residential and contract project services to their clients. In 2015, the two decided to set up their own design firm, “15 West” in Istanbul, with the intention of providing design and production services to residential, hospitality and contract-based projects in Turkey and beyond.
15 West products take inspiration from the designers’ daily lives, along with their rich cultural heritage. Their detail-oriented designs combined with a complex use of materials and patterns reflect the authenticity of Turkey’s eastern & western influence.
By using unexpected materials on point, 15 West products add richness and value to their environment. 15 West Texture Catalog showcases these striking materials.
