Istanbul Design Collection
Inspiration Istanbul: The exhibition presents design works from different disciplines, which originate from or were inspired by the UNESCO City of Design.

Istanbul inspires! Being a metropolis between the Orient and the Occident and a melting pot of manifold influences, the UNESCO City of Design has always provided many links for creative professionals and their work. The complexity of the city also reflects in the various design disciplines that have developed in Istanbul, which are now presented at designforum Steiermark in the “Istanbul Design Collection”. The exhibition showcases work from graphic and industrial design, fashion, architecture, but also traditional handicrafts, hence, a selection of Turkish design culture from several decades, which portrays Istanbul as a city of great cultural diversity and varied facets. You will be able to see a minimalistic bench of stone as well as ornamentally decorated coffee cups, vases or plates displaying simple motifs of daily life at the seaside: water, fish, fruits.
