Istanbul Design Biennial
The primary objective for Zoë Ryan, the head curator, was to stress the creative potential of the Turkish nation and to create a platform that encourages a dialogue between professionals from different creative fields.
The varied programme involves workshops, film screenings, events, discussion panels, as well as exhibitions, and is free of charge. The exhibitors invited numerous national and international creatives in order to familiarise the general public with the design world. Out of 800 submissions 75 innovative projects have been selected.
Hacking The Modern Kitchen is a collaborative project initiated by Gastronomika - a group of industrial designers, architects and chefs - that aims at creating new, design thinking influenced scenarios for traditional Turkish cuisine.
For the Biennial, the collective established a collaborative cooking space filled with the prototypes of kitchen appliances, which were created as the result of a number of cooking experiments.
New Energy Landscapes is a futuristic project by Lally’s, a Chicago based practice, which by means of using the newest technologies created a number of progressive solutions for utterly sustainable cityscapes.
The Graphic design project Dyslexia Typeface intents to challenge the rules of typography and creates new ways of designing for such groups as dysgraphic and dyslexic readers.
Through extensive research, Christian Boer analysed the reading patterns of people with dyslexia and designed new fonts optimized for them.
