Interior architect Enis Karavil started the Sanayi313 brand in 2015 with his brother, Amir, as a way to blend his penchant for what he calls “maximalist expressions in minimalist details” with their Turkish roots and international experience. What began as a line of accessories has now expanded into design studio housed in a converted auto repair shop in Istanbul; a culture publication called Paper; Store, a boutique where you can buy it along with design objects produced in the studio or otherwise collected by the brothers; and Kitchen, a canteen where you can read it while treating yourself to a brunch patisserie buffet.
Store’s inventory now includes the brand’s striking Oblong Collection for furniture. Sanayi313 articulates the titular shape in solid mazel and maple burl to form a series of T-shaped stools that tuck charmingly underneath a graceful dining table. A chunkier, low side table offers the wood maximum impact, as does a monumental bench, while small side tables appear to telescope upwards. Each is handmade by local artisans, and all are offered on the brand’s website and at Love House, with selections also available at Galerie Philia, and 1stDibs.
