A collaborative project with HACER KIROGLU

The work proposes furniture for French balconies, which are frequently preferred as an architectural element in recently built apartments in today's Turkey. The installation, which consists of a folded wooden table and two chairs in a narrowed scale, is accompanied by the book Ornament and Crime by Adolf Loos, which is also narrowed. While the book refers to the decorative elements accompanying the furniture in stores and catalogues, on the other hand, it ironically problematizes the position of the human being stuck between inside and outside, where privacy and publicity are intertwined.
