Probably the least relevant thing that I liked at NeoCon

You go to NeoCon to see furniture, to see rugs, to see textiles.

You don’t go to see props.

That said, one of the more interesting things I saw at the show were these books, used as – yes – props in the Koleksiyon showroom.


There was something wonderfully bland, yet interesting; same same but different; and, most of all, ghostly about these books.  Different shades of grey, different formats, no titles.  They were there, but they weren’t.

Turns out, they were all just bound collections of random Turkish newspaper scraps.


Can’t say why, but I really appreciated them.
