After a few months of Isola Design Festival, almost 700 projects from over 50 countries are on isola.design to date, and many of them have been presented in the first 4 months of the event. The Fuorisalone is an opportunity to discover some of these in person. More than 100 designers, design studios and companies are exhibiting their work in the Isola district, and, after a long time, visitors can experience again the most anticipated design event of the year.
Among the various research materials on display at Spazio Gamma, at the Materialized exhibition, Turkish Stones Library displays an incredible selection of marble, travertine, limestone, dolomite, basalt, onyx and other natural stones, bringing the rich history of these raw materials from Turkey into contemporary design. The goal is to show new possibilities for the innovative application of timeless materials in architecture and design. Turkish Stones is a promoter of the Istanbul Mineral Exporters’ Association (IMIB), a non-profit association that has been overseeing export activities in the Turkish mining sector since 1976.
