Design Workshop: Chair in Search of Time

Pera Adult

  • August 2, 2024 / 19:00

How does furniture, as an object of daily use, affect our lives and emotions? Are we aware of the impact of Bauhaus ideas, which continue to influence furniture design as in different design disciplines, on our daily lives? The workshop invites participants to rethink the chair from a perspective that questions the function/form relationship after learning about the iconic chairs and design principles designed at the Bauhaus in different periods. Based on their personal experiences with chairs, participants play with traditional forms with the help of artificial intelligence and design a chair of today. 

Note: There is no need for any computer program knowledge and tools for the workshop. 

Instructor: İpek Kay
Capacity: 12 people
Duration: 90 minutes
Fee per workshop: 300 TL   

The event will take place at the Pera Museum (face-to-face).

When the Royal Academy of Arts offered Stephen Chambers the opportunity to produce new work for a focused exhibition in the Weston Rooms of the Main Galleries, Chambers turned to print and the possibilities it offered.

This is one of Stanisław Chlebowski’s larger canvasses dealing with themes other than battles; only Ottoman Life at the Sweet Waters now at the Istanbul Military Museum can compare with it in size.

The Captive Sultan

The Captive Sultan

The war fought by the Greeks to shake off the Turkish yoke was closely observed around Europe and, this being the era of romanticism, the events taking place around Greece between 1821 and 1832 became a symbol for national liberation struggle.
