Fulden Topaloglu Sama Furniture Series
Sama Furniture Series is Silver Design Award winner in 2019 - 2020 Furniture Design Award Category.
Sama Furniture Series

Sama is an authentic furniture series that provides functionality, emotional experience and uniqueness through its minimal, practical forms and strong visual effect. The cultural inspiration drawn from the poetry of whirling costumes worn in Sama ceremonies is reinterpreted in its design through a play of conic geometry and metal bending techniques. The sculptural posture of the series is combined with simplicity in materials, forms and production techniques, to offer functional & aesthetic benefits. The result is a modern furniture series providing a distinctive touch to living spaces.
