“Design Chronology Turkey | Draft”, which was initiated within the scope of the 3rd Istanbul Design Biennial, focuses on the 200 years of history of design in Turkey. Under 13 headings, “Ceramics”, “Communication and Advertisement”, “Furniture”, “Graphic”, “Health”, “Housing”, “Industrial Buildings”, “Landscape”, “Lighting”, “Music”, “Non-Governmental Organizations”, “Packaging” and “Toys”, the compilations bring together various works from the past, hoping to create a platform for discussion through these areas that touch upon our everyday lives. The texts, which were created by the project team called “Curious Assembly”, are waiting to be further developed with new content.
