Haven't been to Turkey in a while which makes me miss the place. I do not know where the photos above were taken but they are absolutely terrific. Imagine living in place like this. Actuall it reminds me of this place.

Autoban designed cafe in Istanbul



Now that you've seen the über-cool flat of the Autoban designers last week I bet you are curious to see what the spaces Autoban designs look like, right? Here is a cafe in Istanbul they designed. It is on my to do list for my next trip to Istanbul and hopefully European Chic reader A. from the Porto area, Portugal, will also visit this cafe when she goes there this summer.

Istanbul was Constantinople


I fell in love with the designs from Turkish design duo Autoban when I first discovered them in 2004 in Wallpaper magazine. If you have been following my blog you know that I like visiting Turkey from time to time. So today we are going to see how Seyhan Özdemir and Sefer Çağlar, the two designers behind Autoban, live in Istanbul. I love hanging out in Istanbul and I am sure you will, too.
Initially, this post was a guest post contribution but when it was not picked up I decided to post it here on European Chic as you would surely want to see this amazing flat.

Greetings from the birthday girl! It is a beautiful day to celebrate today.

Turkish Impressions II


Remember that we went to the Istanbul bazaars some time ago. Today the devil is in the details. What I find so exciting about Istanbul is that the city is so dynamic. In Istanbul East meets West.




The last two photos are taken at the hotel where the German Turkish director Fatih Atkin filmed the award-winning film Head On which is worth checking out. (The film and the roof terrace with the view over the Bosporus)
