15 West is an Istanbul based design company specializing in residential, hospitality and commercial furniture design. The company’s aim is to create aesthetically pleasing atmospheres with a universal appeal with its attentively designed and manufactured products. The designs are influenced by the designer's Turkish cultural heritage and materialized by the use of modern-day manufacturing techniques. They emerge from the designers' combined appreciation of form, texture, pattern and focus on detail.
Each product of the 15 West Collection is manufactured elaborately by hand, thus maintaining a high status of originality. Focusing on unique finishes and materials, which are designed by 15 West designers and produced by local artisans, provides each user with the privilege of owning a personalized product. Use of bold but elegant geometric shapes with high-quality materials also enhance the value of each product.
Apart from their 15 West Collection, the company also designs site-specific products for architectural projects.
