ABOUT STUDIO SAHIL

It's the swish of water in a drinking glass, the curve of a decorative vase, or the moving shadows created by adding light to a room; when you stop to ask questions about the objects you encounter every day, stories and connections start to emerge. What raw materials went into the finished prod­uct? Who has touched it along the way? Studio Sahil creates objects that bring these underlying narratives to light. Our designs are more than just beautiful finished products-they are timeless testaments to materiality, process and culture.

 

Sahil is the Turkish word for coast or shore. We look to the natural phenomena, complex patterns and continuous evolution of seaside landscapes to inspire and inform our practice. Each piece is handmade from organic materials by Rezzan Hasoğlu and local artisans, using materials and tech­niques that respect the environment. We pay attention to how our designs connect with our daily experiences, how they narrate a story and how they draw attention to the often-unnoticed details of everyday life.
