Tabanlıoğlu Architects to debut installation at Somerset House - London Design Festival 2015
Their collaboration involves the creation of a lowered ceiling of light by Arik Levy made of LED strips – an extension of his eponymous ‘Fractal Projects’, a light sculpture that represents no beginning and no end’ – and simultaneously, a multi-faceted kinetic object placed underneath that has a reflective surface, by Tabanlıoğlu Architects.



LONDON.- Istanbul-based Tabanlıoğlu Architects have been chosen to showcase their installation with Arik Levy at the inaugural Somerset House 10 Designers in the West Wing at London Design Festival 2015.

An exciting time for Tabanlıoğlu Architects as they open their London office, their involvement in London Design Festival and partnership with renowned artist and industrial designer, Arik Levy, brings together two like-minded spheres of talent to create a striking installation in a two-room space at Somerset House.

Their collaboration involves the creation of a lowered ceiling of light by Arik Levy made of LED strips – an extension of his eponymous ‘Fractal Projects’, a light sculpture that represents no beginning and no end’ – and simultaneously, a multi-faceted kinetic object placed underneath that has a reflective surface, by Tabanlıoğlu Architects. One room will host a dense layer of light that is reflected in the floor, creating the ‘warm’ room. The other will be more sparsely lit with opaque qualities over a solid pool - an endlessly shifting metal platform that holds dispersing water drops - evoking a ‘wet’ cooler sensation for the individual.

The joint work of Tabanlıoğlu Architects and Arik Levy will use diverse mediums of light and solid, dry and wet, warm and cold, in an interdisciplinary collaboration between architecture and art. Both parties' prior works reveal keen understanding of transparency, light, opacity and transition between them. The installation is shown alongside Faye Toogood, Barber & Osgerby, Nendo, Luca Nichetto with Hem, PATTERNITY with Paperless Post, and Alex Rasmussen and Neal Feay, as part of the 10 Designers in the West Wing exhibition.

Arik Levy says: ‘I was delighted to be asked to work with the Tabanlıoğlu team on this prestigious project. Our disciplines merge perfectly and our installation will reflect themes that are consistent throughout both our bodies of work to create a striking collaboration that will be one not to miss.’

Tabanlıoğlu Architects says: ‘We are thrilled to partner with such a talent for our first London Design Festival; Arik is a longstanding friend of Tabanlıoğlu Architects and we are excited at this opportunity to work closely with him at what is sure to be a thriving hub at the heart of this year’s festival.’
