One of the founders of “A Day of Design”, Mehmet Yücebaşoğlu makes every place different with his imaginative touch. He is being closely followed by world-famous brands! In addition to the works he’s been producing, since starting his own office, he makes a difference with his own style as well. We asked Yücebaşoğlu about his favourite objects.
From my earliest recollection this armchair, designed in 1948, is one of the designs I’ve always admired. It was also the first piece of furniture I bought when I moved into my house 9 years ago. I even had a tattoo of it done on my wrist.
I bought it in April 2015 on my Marrakech trip and I like its energy a lot.
It’s a 30th birthday gift by my closest friends.
I first saw and fell for this ‘Simon’ candelabra at Aziz Sarıyer’s house. It was designed by Borek Sipek in 1989. Later I bought one for myself. I use it very often.
I bought it at the flea market in Berlin when I went there for my birthday in April 2015. Although it’s quite heavy, I brought it here by hand luggage hand with the help of my friend Suela. I don’t know anything about it, who designed it or which decade it belongs to… Still, it suits my house very well.
