Interior environments, products, furniture and lighting – Istanbul based Autoban are unabashed design multi-hyphenates. Founders Seyhan Ozdemir and Sefer Caglar met at the Fine Arts Faculty of Mimar Sinan University, studying architecture and interior design respectively.
With the credo of “form, function, experience,” Autoban was established in 2003 to combine product development, architecture, and interior design under one roof. The collaboration has proven to be extremely productive, with myriad restaurant, hotel and retail interiors – known for their sense of discovery and experience - achieving global recognition.
Given their breadth of experience in creating dynamic interiors of all sizes, an extension into furniture, objects and lighting was a no-brainer. and Autoban lighting is characterized by its clean, modern sensibility, thoughtful evocation of traditional motifs and the influence of the team’s native Turkey.
