Luxury design collective Ahu, will launch its inaugural Meyhane collection at London Design Festival. Inspired by the diverse cultures that have inhabited Asia Minor, Ahu creates custom limited edition furniture designs, handmade by master craftsmen in specialised ateliers in Istanbul.
Based in London and Istanbul, Ahu produces custom and limited edition collectible designs that are both functional and sculptural. Each piece is hand made in Istanbul by master craftsmen in specialised and small ateliers using the highest quality materials and finishes. Founded by Eda Akaltun and Mevce Çıracı, the pieces are inspired and informed by the art, craft, history and mysticism of the diverse cultures that have inhabited Asia Minor and by ikram, the Turkish tradition of offering guests boundless hospitality. The design studio will exhibit the Nazar mahogany and lacquer cabinet, which is one of 3 different designs in the collection. The sister pieces titled Third Eye and Waves will be made to order and have a limited edition of 8 + 2 Artist’s Proofs and an individual, engraved metal plaque displaying the edition number of each piece.
